Baked Avocado

I had never even heard of baked avocado before making this, call me naive, if you will! However its rather a revelation - you may wonder what the baking adds to it, well it seems to make it more fleshy, meaty even. You can really taste the avocado and its smooth creamy texture.

I paired the avocado with a spicy prawn mixture, the spice was made from chilli, garlic, spring onions and a bit of sweet chilli sauce and hot pepper sauce! As you can tell I like my spice - but its up to you how hot or cool you make it. I love the super quick bake time of this, 8 minutes in all, if you want your avocado a bit softer, bake it for a bit longer. Once ready I splashed some lime juice on top to freshen it up again, if I'd had some I would have popped on some fresh coriander too. You cant beat that combination. This is a great starter that really sets you up for your main meal, or how about a light lunch.

Enjoy!
