About Seafood Stuffed Avocados

I’m going to come right out and say it:

This is a recipe that was born out of necessity.

And by that I mean I bought avocados and (once again!) they were getting dangerously close to passing their prime before I had a chance to make whatever it was I originally intended to make.

Though honestly, I don’t even remember what I wanted to use them for. Sometimes it’s like I’m a whole different person when I’m shopping, as if I lead a secret double life as a gourmet chef and I’m picking up a few more items for the night’s elaborate menu – but even still, I was fully aware of these avocados that were slowly wasting away in my kitchen.

I love avocados, I really do, but I just don’t have many recipes in my arsenal that use them.

So I had to get a little creative. Instead of building a dish that

Instead of building a dish that included avocados, I made a dish out of avocados.

Avocados seem to be on fire right now, with awesome recipes cropping up left and right.

I’ve even seen eggs baked inside in avocados, which was the primary inspiration for this recipe, but as I did a little digging I found that you could stuff these bad boys with just about anything – like seafood, for example.

I’ve mentioned my long-standing love affair with seafood before, so this seemed like the absolute best way to take advantage of my avocado’s prime.

To top these off I drizzled sriracha cream sauce (I know I know, I’m obsessed with this stuff) and an avocado cream sauce.

Just in case you didn’t already have enough avocado flavor going on with this.

Go big or go home, right?

Both sauces are optional, though, so mix and match to your heart’s content!

Halved avocados filled with chopped shrimp, fresh crab, and tomato and then drizzled with sriracha and avocado creams on top.

Ingredients 

Seafood Stuffed Avocados
  • 3 avocado
  • 5 jumbo shrimp
  • 4 ounce crab meat, (1 can, thoroughly drained)
  • 2 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tomato, chopped small and seedy pulp disgarded
  • 1 teaspoon parsley, fresh and chopped
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
Sriracha Cream Sauce (optional)
Creamy Avocado Sauce (optional)

Instructions

Creamy Avocado Sauce (optional)
  • Place all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Refrigerate in a sealed container until ready to use.
For the Seafood Stuffed Avocados
  • If using raw shrimp: boil shrimp for 3-5 minutes or until bodies are pink and curled. Remove shrimp from water and chill for 1 hour. Once chilled, chop shrimp into small pieces.
