I have always wanted to try grilled avocados but have never gotten around to it. When Cin Cin Let’s Eat posted this recipes, I knew I had to try it. Especially since I had all the ingredients readily on hand. The grill made the avocado especially creamy and added a nice subtle smoky flavor. I didn’t care for the wasabi paste. It made the dish taste too much like sushi. I can’t wait to make guacamole with these smoky avocados!
Grilled Japanese Style Avocado (from Cin Cin, Let’s Eat)
- 1 avocado
- Olive oil
- Nori sheets, thinly sliced into flakes
- Ponzu sauce
- Wasabi paste (optional)
Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Slice the avocado on the horizontal and vertical without piercing the skin. Rub the flesh with a small amount of olive oil. Grill for about 3 minutes or until warmed through and with char marks. Remove from the grill and top each half with salt, nori flakes, and ponzu sauce. Serve with wasabi paste on the side, if desired. Serves 2 as a side dish or appetizer.
