We thought we would take this fruit favorite and add a flavor level for your avocado recipes by wood-firing the avocado. This simple step will bring all the nutritional benefits of the fruit with a bold new taste.
7 Fresh IngredientsOnce you’ve wood fired your avocados on a gas or charcoal grill (see our posting on this technique), you need to gather the following ingredients:
- 3 wood fired avocados
- 1 finely grated garlic clove
- 1 finely chopped Serrano or jalapeno pepper
- ¼ of a white onion, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
Layering on the FlavorsFirst up, you need to mash up the wood fired avocado flesh. The best guacamole has some chunky quality to it so keep this in mind when you are mashing the flesh. Once the avocado is mashed up, add the pepper and combine that as well. You can select the pepper based on whether you want heat or not. If you prefer a guacamole that has no spice, then add a sweet pepper.
Once the grilled avocado and pepper are mixed, time to add the other ingredients. First in, chopped onion followed by lime juice, cilantro and salt. Combine everything well ensuring that any chunks are not too big for any of the ingredients. Soon you’ll get the aroma of all the fresh ingredients and have an idea just how this is going to taste.
