This is the only way I have ever eaten avocado, so have nothing to compare it to. They don't taste bitter to me. Really, I don't think they have much taste at all.
The flesh does get soft. I brush with oil and maybe lemon or lime juice, sometimes nothing, and you can watch the skin changing color as they cook. Kind of like a thermometer rising the way the changing color creeps from the cut half on the grill towards the top of the avocado. They probably take a good 15 minutes or longer.
IMO it's all about the salsa inside
but I do scoop the fruit.
