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….
- Grilled avocado toast for breakfast or afternoon snack – genius!
- As a topping for shrimp tacos
- Transform into a chunky guacamole
- As a burger topping
- Part of BLTs – or rather BLTAs
- In a variety of salads
