The second avocado is also ripe, so I took the other half of yesterday's and chunked it up into the shrimp gazpacho. It's divine.

The latest avocado is still not ripe.

I added about 4 oz. of lump crabmeat to the shrimp salad and am eating it plain.

I've got lots of salad left to use up, so I'm thinking the shrimp and crab salad made into patties and coated with Panko for some shrimpy crab cakes.

I still have some crabmeat and lots of shrimp for another salad. If the avocado will ever ripen.

Can you put them in a brown bag to ripen, like a banana?

Yes, put it in a brown paper bag! It'll be ready tomorrow. I've gotten good at buying "today, tomorrow and the next day" avocados. Haven't mastered a fourth day one, yet.

Better yet put a banana next to it, it helps ripen the fruit. It gives off ethylene gas that speeds up the ripening of other fruits.

Oh, this isn't stuffed, but in the same theme, one thing that is always a hit as an appetizer is a rather firm (ripe, mind you, but firm) avocado, sliced, then as you might see done with a cantaloupe, a sliver of proscuitto wrapped around each slice. Rare tuna? I'd go with poke (raw tuna marinaded salad) if you can get good quality.

I put my unripened peppers into a gallon baggie and do that. It makes them ripen nicely! Nanners seem to give off more gas than any other fruit or veggie!

Well the last avocado was looking spotty so I went ahead and cut it open. Grayish streaks throughout. I'm done with the avocados this season. Two went bad out of three.

avocado, recipe

Stuffed Avocados I found a couple of the most beautiful avocados today. I also picked up a pound of frozen wild caught 91/xxx shrimp (cleaned, of course). One of my favorite dinners is a simple shrimp salad stuffed avocado. Do you stuff your avocados and if so, with what?:chef: 3 stars 1 reviews
