Grilled Avocado with Sesame Tuna Stir-Fry

Dinner, Seafood | July 15, 2015 | By

When we took a family holiday to Palm Springs in April, one of the things I was looking forward to the most were the avocados. I didn’t like them up until about a year ago when I tried guacamole and realized what I had been missing, so I have a lot of catching up to do. The avocados were so good that we ended up making guacamole every single day we were there, with drinks before dinner. One night – before going to a Mexican restaurant for dinner I might add – we thought we’d better switch up our snack, but after a quick look around the grocery store we gravitated back to the bins of ripe avocado. I think that must be the epitome of happiness – when your worries consist of planning cocktail snacks and the only organized event of the day is pre-dinner guacamole by the pool. 

Serves 2

Ingredients:
1 avocado
1 tbsp oil
1/4 white onion
1 garlic scape (or 1 clove of garlic)

Tabasco
1 can tuna
1 green onion
Sprouts (optional)

5. Chop the carrot and pepper in a small dice and add to the pan along with sesame oil, soy sauce and a dash of tabasco, stirring often until vegetables have softened. (You may need to cover the pan part way with a lid to help steam the veggies)

6. Once the veggies are cooked, add the tuna, break it into flakes and mix well.
