Aguacate Relleno de Salmón (Avocado Filled with Salmon)

Avocado is one of my favorite ingredients, and I could eat them daily! This was a quick lunch and I enjoyed every bite of it. Easy and simple, yet a gorgeous dish that can be served as an appetizer for dinner, or as a main meal for lunch. The salmon harmonizes perfectly with the avocado.

Buen provecho!



  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4 avocados
  • 2 cups of cooked and shredded salmon
  • 1 cup of salsa rosada or golf
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup onion, grated
  • ½ cup cooked peas
  • ½ cup cooked corn
  • ½ cooked and diced carrots
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Aguacate Relleno de Salmón


  1. Mix the cooked salmon, grated onions and the salsa rosada and season with salt and pepper to your taste.
  2. Cut the avocados lengthwise, drizzle the lime juice over the avocados to prevent them from darkening, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Fill the avocados with the salmon mixture, add some peas, carrots and corn. Sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro and serve immediately.

I love this! Three of my favorite foods: salmon, avocado, and peas, coming together in a cute little green boat. YUM! :)

I’m with you – give me an avocado every day! Loving this with the salmon – both the contrast in colors, texture and flavor. Saving this. A salmon day is on the horizon.

It looks absolutely delicious, great looking dish! Definitely will be trying this, I’d love the sauce and the salmon with avocado. I make a similar dressing and we know it as Russian dressing, but I’d love the addition of lime juice!

I could eat both salmon and avocados every day–and maybe I should, since they’re both good for you! This is a lovely idea.

The buttery avocado and the sweet salmon – what a delicious combination!

This looks scrumptious and would make a great alternative to prawn cocktail. Love the addition of carrots and sweetcorn

I had to call Alexis to come look at this one because it combines two of her all time favorites, salmon and avocado. Brilliant!

I made these avocados for memorial day weekend and they were a hit. Everyone loved them.
