Did you know it was National Guacamole Day yesterday? No, I'm not kidding, there is such a day! And I missed it. Bummer. That would have been a good excuse to
stuff my face with eat a giant bowl of guac. Not that I really need a excuse or anything, because I'm the kind of girl who eats guacamole at least three times a week. That's how much I love the stuff. Without even mentioning how amazing it tastes, I love it because it's convenient. Ready in 5 minutes, with just a few ingredients. I'm always keeping things very simple: I just use avocado (duh!), a lot of red onion and salt. That's all! Yummy yummy in my tummy (no I'm not a 5-year old).
Anyway, like a said 2 lines ago I eat a lot of guac and this time, I wanted to do something a tad more creative with the avocado sitting on my counter. Tada the tuna avocado boats were born! It's basically a sort of guacamole, with big chunks of avocado, mixed with tuna. It's perfect as a cute appetizer (especially if you serve them in the avocado shells!) or you can eat the whole thing for lunch - that's what I did!
Tuna Avocado Boats
- 1 avocado ripe
- 6 oz - 170 g canned tuna
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 2 tsp red onion chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped
- the juice of ½ lime
- 1 tsp olive oil optional
- salt and pepper to taste
Cut avocado in half, slice the flesh in segment and using a spoon, transfer it to a bowl. Try not to pierce the shell if you want to use it as a serving bowl.
In the same bowl, add all the remaining ingredients and mix to combine.
Spoon the mixture back into the avocado shells and serve.
