Avocado on the Half Shell


  • 1 small ripe avocado
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 pinches flaky salt (any old salt will work just fine, too)


  1. Cut the avocado in half by running a sharp knife lengthwise around the circumference of the fruit. Pull the two halves apart. Spoon the avocado pit out of the fruit or wack it firmly with the blade of a chef's knife so the knife inserts in the pit and you can dislodge it from the avocado.
  2. Squeeze the juice from the lemon over the surface of the avocado halves, dousing them generously. Add a pinch of salt over each avocado half.
  3. Serve with a spoon.
