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?

I love them stuffed with shrimp salad also. Unfortunately, I've developed an allergy to avocados, so I can't eat them anymore.

I am very original, I eat avocados with a spoon, they rarely make it into anything.

I will have to try the shrimp stuffing idea, Z! It sounds wonderful. I make avacado and sprout sandwiches all the time, and make guacamole. I also slice them into my salads and eat them like our Princess does! I will have to think about stuffings. You have opened up a whole new world for me!

One of the tastiest appys I've had recently was at a restaurant in Aruba. They served an avocado half filled with crabmeat salad and topped with shrimp. It was delicious.

Actually, I'm going to go get some avocados, if I can find good ones, for Chicken Tortilla Soup tomorrow. There's something about hot avocado!

I would never have thought to stuff avocados. How exactly do you do this? Is it just a matter of removing the pit and stuffing the shrimp salad into the resulting hole? I've stuffed avocados into something else, but never stuffed them. This is something I need to try. It sounds good!

Near and Dear to my heart. The first meal I made for my then-boyfriend (now husband) had stuffed avocado for the first course. I was quite broke then and the avocado and shrimp nearly broke the bank! I think I let the shrimp stand almost along -- just a little olive oil and vinegar. Maybe some green onions. I pitted and very carefully peeled the avocado. The extra $$ for another avocado just wasn't there, but I did it. I also roasted a duck, something I'd never done before. I'd made a red wine marinade and the duck turned a ghastly shade of purple that made me break out in tears! But it tasted good.

That's exactly how you stuff it.

The idea came from a lunch my Mom and I had when shopping at Macy's restaurant. We tried it, loved it, adopted the idea. I've been making it for years.

Andy I love the idea of crab too.

I love avocados. They're good nekkid with a little truffle salt, and they make a wonderful cold soup......
