Grilled Avocado Guacamole

Ok if you haven’t grilled avocado before you are missing out on my new favorite food! Once this creamy fruit is grilled the flavor changes from mild, to smoky and rich. I saw the host of The Main grill some avocados a little while a go, and I was totally intrigued. Although I forgot his recipe, I came up with a stellar smoky chunky guac that even I really enjoyed!

The grilling:

I halved 3 ripe avocados, removed the pit, and the fruit from the skin. I used a searing hot cast iron grill pan on the stove well oiled to grill each side for about 4 minutes, without touching or moving them around. I sprinkled the halved with S+P and cut into cubes. These seared pieces of avocado are amazing just like this! They would be fab on a sandwich or salad, or filled with salsa as a appetizer.

The guac:

I stared with 2 tbsp of Salsa Verde, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1/4 of a jalapeño minced, the juice and some zest from 1 lime, 1 large green onion diced small, a splash of walnut oil, S+P and a pinch of cane sugar, along with the cubes of avocado. Mix by hand with a spoon until some cubes are broken up and some remain chunky. If you are not serving this immediately give the surface of your surveying bowl a good squeeze of lime juice to keep it from browning. ENJOY!
