Like just about everyone else out there I like to scroll through my Pinterest feed and look for ideas. For a while I would re-pin posts and my pin board became like a black hole, pins would go there never to be seen again. So the past month or so I have been trying to actually look at the pins and try them out. One pin that seemed to circulate this summer was grilled avocados. I had never even dreamed of grilling an avocado. HAD to try it. The first time I prepared it and JF put it on his charcoal grill. Second time I did it on our electric grill (like a George Foreman grill). Both were tasty, the latter was a lot easier!
How I grill an avocado:
Slice your avocado in half
Brush with olive oil
Sprinkle with sea salt and cracked black pepper
Place face down on a medium-hot grill for about 5 minutes. Using a spatula flip it over to check for handsome grill marks and crispy browning. If needed place it on the grill a few more minutes.
Insiders tip: when the avocado looks done place it skin side on the grill just for a minute or two to warm the inner layer.
Scoop the avocado out to eat it.
Now that I have had grilled avocado it's all I want! The grilling really brings out the flavor.
Try a variety of spices in addition to or instead of the salt and pepper.
I paired my grilled avocado with simmered black beans and fresh, chopped, tomatoes.
