Avocados - How Do You Prepare/Dishes You Like?

What dishes do you like & prepare with this creamy velvety nutritious fruit? I enjoy salads, garnishing soups, dips (guacamole), Mexican cuisine, stuffing an avo with crab salad, spread on toast, or just naked. What are some of your favorites.

The description below doesn't do this appetizer justice. It's a regular on the menu at a favorite restuarant in Aruba.

Avocado De La Mar
A unique combination; a fresh slice of avocado filled with a salad of shrimp and crab meat

This reminds me of a visit to London when I was in college. We had prawns in avocado halves whenever we could. As I recall it was with a very light tomato-based dressing.

No deliveries. They're on my list of places to visit when we go to Aruba this winter.

Green Goddess dressing would be nice, too.

I had a half avocado (unpeeled) that was lightly brushed with olive oil mixed with a drop or two of honey and grilled, cut side down. I had never had grilled avocado, but this was delicious. It was served with grilled pineapple, peaches, and grilled prawns on a lightly dressed bed of mixed greens. Yum!

Sounds delish, Shelly! I'll have to remember to add some honey. Thank you.

Avocados rarely make it into dish around here. Cut in half and eat, nothing fancy, no salt and pepper or anything.
