Grilled Avocados Stuffed with Veggie Ceviche Recipe
Grilling week continues! For the three recipes I’m sharing this week (the primary was a grilled asparagus recipe should you missed it), I actually wished to decide on produce that’s much less generally grilled. We’ll have all summer time to grill my favourite staples like peppers, zucchini, and eggplant. I’ve by no means grilled an avocado, I believed “ooh, that’ll be enjoyable!” It was enjoyable, we liked it, and so will you:
I begin by making my veggie ceviche filling with hearts of palm (it has a fish-like texture), tomato, serrano pepper, cilantro, and diced crimson onion for crunch. The veggies get tossed with plenty of lime juice, zest, and a splash of coconut milk.
I often like my ceviche with avocado chunks in it… on this case, I’m doing issues backwards by stuffing the ceviche into the avocado. By itself, the ceviche is a bit on the tart facet, however these flavors turn into extra balanced as soon as nestled within the creamy avocado.
After filling is made and also you’re able to eat, slice and season the avocado halves with olive oil, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Don’t slice them any earlier or they’ll begin to brown.
(Sidebar – drain any liquid that’s fallen into the opening of the avocado earlier than inserting them on the grill. When oil drips into the grill, the flame will get greater and also you don’t need your arms to be close by).
Grill the avocados on medium-high warmth, minimize facet down, for Three-Four minutes. Mine (pictured) got here out a tiny bit too charred at 5 minutes, however they have been nonetheless smooth, creamy, tangy, and scrumptious!
