Recipe Box, Grilled Avocados & Avocado Fries

The other night we had chicken fajitas

Simple grilled chicken, sauteed onions and sweet peppers,

tucked into a lightly fried flour tortilla

and drizzled with a little queso…

Paired with a side of grilled avocados, it was a wonderful meal!

These avocados couldn’t be easier to make…

Leave the skin on and cut ripe avocados in half

Remove the pit

Brush the cut sides with olive oil, drizzle with a little lemon juice

and season with salt and pepper

Put them on a medium high heated grill* cut side down

Cook for 4-6 minutes

*You can also cook these stove top in a grill pan

A light, healthy and nutritious side for just about any meal!

Avocados also make great fries!

Not quite as easy or healthy as grilled avocados,

but very delicious and a fun lo-carb change from potato fries!

Avocado slices are dipped in milk, egg, and panko bread crumbs

Then fried to crispy perfection!

Grilled Avocados

This is a great summer side dish you can grill right along side your meat. Avocado halves are brushed with olive oil and lemon, seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled for 4-6 minutes for a tasty, healthy side dish!

  1. Good morning, Jenna. Grilled or fried, the avocados look delicious. I know you are enjoying your time at the beach. Happy Sunday to you!

  2. You always make those look so good, I just wish avocados were less expensive.

  3. Love the smokiness of a grilled avocado!

  4. I love those grilled avocado halves! They look literally melt-in-mouth and creamy.

  5. Julie says:

    These avocado’s look amazing. I would never think to make them on the grill or into fries. Thanks for this idea Jenna. I can’t wait to make grilled avocado’s.

  6. thefrenchhutch says:

    I can’t wait to try the grilled avocado. I have one in the refrigerator so it will hit the grill today or tomorrow. I would love the fried version I’m sure. Pinning……

  7. Intriguing avocado recipes – a yummy idea!

  8. I love avocados but I never would have thought to grill them. What a good idea!

  9. Bonnie Morgan says:

    Those grilled avocados are calling my name. I need something different. I usually just cut them up and pour Greek Salad dressing on them as a side.

  10. Mary says:

    Ooh I bet that’s a great solution for avocados that are not quite ripe! I bet the grilled flavor would really wake up guacamole too! ♥

  11. lghiggins says:

    I have never had a cooked avocado, but I’ve never met an avocado I didn’t love. I’ll give it a try.😀

  12. Never heard of grilling them, bet it did add some nice flavor:@)

    Jenna, I have never grilled nor fried avocados!!! I need to do this because I always have avocados in my kitchen. Thank you so much for sharing!! 🥑

  14. Aquietlife says:

    Oh this sounds and looks delish, my mouth is watering! Thanks for visiting today, great to see you again!

  15. I’m going to try those avocado fries, except I think I might try to do them in the air fryer. I’m getting old. Can’t eat the stuff I used to.😞

  16. Pattie says:

    I wish that I would have read this post earlier because yesterday I was using my grill (burgers and cauliflower steaks) and it would have been the perfect time to try avocados. Thanks for the great idea!
