Grilled avocado with zingy tomato salsa

Everyone loves a good avocado, but have you ever grilled this creamy fruit? If the answer is no, I highly suggest you do it - right now!

Grilling works to enhance the already complex flavours of avocado. The addition of the zingy lime salsa compliments this fruit. Pair it with a salad and you've got yourself a light, but extremely satisfying meal.

Serves 1

Ingredients

1 small avocado, halved

Handful of mixed cherry tomatoes

1 tablespoon of red onion, finely chopped

Juice of lime

A glug of extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt

Freshly cracked pepper

Rocket leaves

Method

Wash and finely chop the cherry tomatoes and place in a small bowl. Add sliced onion, olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. 

Brush flesh of avocado with olive oil and place on a hot grill for around 2 minutes, until grill marks appear. Flip avocado to skin side, briefly charring the skin. 

Top avocado halves with salsa mix and place on a plate along with a handful of rocket leaves. Drizzle with olive oil and serve immediately.
