Looking for something to throw on the grill along with a burger or steak? Look no further! I read about grilled avocados some time back on a cooking forum and thought to myself, "Why would I want to ruin a perfectly good avocado?" Come to find out they are pretty good hot off the grill! I read that you simple want to brush them with olive oil and crack pepper over them but I expanded upon that a little to make them into a real meal. *Updated method 6/30/2010*

Ingredients:
Avocados
2 Large avocados (firm but ripe)
1/3 cup fresh, homemade or your favorite salsa
Pickled Jalapeno slices for garnish

Sauce
2 tbsp fresh lime
2 tbsp white truffle oil
1 tsp cumin
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)

Sauce
In a medium bowl whisk seasonings and lime into truffle oil. Sit to side until ready to use but whisk before using.

Avocados
Preheat grill to medium.

Cut avocados in half, remove seeds and then drip cut side down into mixed sauce. Lay cut-side down onto grill for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from grill and fill each seed cavity with salsa. Add a jalapeno slice for a garnish and serve warm. (Eat with a spoon or fork.)

  2. Ha my sister would go crazy for this one! Those goodies are expensive here like 3 bucks for one or something. But, I'm just inspired to surprise her now - thank Frand!
