Type: Appetizer Recipe

Serve with: a romantic dinner for two
Prep Time: 15 min
Yields: 2 cups per avocado



  1. Slice avocados from top to bottom around the large pit inside.
  2. Twist the halves apart.
  3. Take a sharp knife & tap the blade side firmly into the pit. Leaving the blade somewhat stuck in the pit, twist the pit out of the ripe avocado.
  4. Scoop out the avocado flesh from each side of the avocado.
  5. Chop, reserve in a bowl, and lightly coat with fresh lemon juice, so the avocado flesh doesn’t turn brown before use & serving.
  6. Fill avocado shells with crab meat and/or lobster meat, or shrimp salad for a gorgeous appetizer.
