  • 1 ripe but still firm avocado
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • 1/4 tsp creamed horseradish
  • 100 g smoked salmon
  • 1 tsp dill
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • pinch salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper


  • Place a ridged griddle pan on a high heat.
  • Cut the avocado in half and remove the stone.
  • Place the avocado halves onto the hot griddle, cut side down.
  • Press down lightly and then leave to cook and charr, for about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile make up the smoked salmon cream.
  • In a small bowl mix together the sour cream and the horseradish.
  • Finely chop the smoked salmon and add it to the cream.
  • Stir through the dill and lemon zest, check for seasoning and add salt if required.
  • Gently push the avocados down and then remove from the pan.
  • Top each avocado hole with a large spoonful of smoked salmon cream and served with a wedge of lemon and a garnish of black pepper.


I did this in my griddle pan, but you can place the avocado directly onto the barbecue and get an extra smokey hit.
