Recipe: Avocado Stuffed with Seafood

P3 and P4 LegalOk, so it’s avocado season again. And when I say avocado season, I mean it’s the season where you can pick them up at the store for a dollar a piece. That is a steal of a deal for a meal!

I love avocados just as serving platters, as this recipe attests to. You can do just about anything you want with the stuffing, experiment. Yum, I love the freshness of this recipe.

Enjoy!

Serving Idea: You can stuff, or you can take one half of the avocado and chop it and add to the stuffing. No joke, this isn’t as good alone as it is with the avocado. The texture and taste of the avocado really adds to this!

Note: Very quick meal. And you can use anything in place of the crab and shrimp, do it to your liking!
