Summer Inspiration: Grilled Avocados

IMG_9806

Until very recently, I never considered grilling avocados – and now that I have discovered this, there’s no turning back.  The recipe is super simple – cut a few ripe avocados in half.  Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and ancho chile powder (cayenne, paprika or any other chile powder work well). Grill for 1-2 minutes, cut side down till charred.  Season with Maldon salt and squeeze on some fresh lime juice.  Ridiculous good.

The possibilities for grilled avocados are endless….

  1. Grilled avocado toast for breakfast or afternoon snack – genius!
  2. As a topping for shrimp tacos
  3. Transform into a chunky guacamole
  4. As a burger topping
  5. Part of BLTs – or rather BLTAs
  6. In a variety of salads
