    avocado ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (I doubled up on the lime juice and skipped the lemon juice)
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • tequila (I don't like tequila so it was omitted)
    • 1/3 teaspoon culinary grade provence lavender (finely ground in a spice grinder or a small pestle & mortar and use fresh lavender when available)
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 3 avocados, firm but ripe



    1. 1
      Place the butter in a small prep bowl. Use a fork to whip it soft until creamy.
    2. 2
      Add the lime juice (and lemon juice), tequila if using, lavender, and salt. Beat until all the liquid is incorporated. Refrigerate until firm.
    3. 3
      Preheat a grill to medium-high. We used our stove top grill to prepare this recipe.
    4. 4
      Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. DO NOT peel the avocados.
    5. 5
      Place the avocados on the heated grill, flesh side DOWN and leave for about 4 minutes to make grill marks on the flesh. Tip: on our stove top grill with my hand I [lightly] added pressure to the avocados to speed up the grill mark process thus avoiding overcooking the avocados and turning soft too quickly.
    6. 6
      Turn the avocado halves over and place a scant tablespoon of the butter-citrus mixture in the hollow of each avocado.
    7. 7
      Grill for an additional 10 minutes approximately or until the butter melts and the avocado is soft but not mushy. *The cooking time depends on the ripeness of the avocado.* The avocado should bubble around the skin but not be overcooked. For testing this recipe, this step took me about 4 minutes on the stove top grill.
    8. 8
      The avocados halves were served with a light garnish of lime zest, our main dish of simple roasted chicken; Minted Glazed Carrots, and Crash Hot Potatoes.
