Smoked Salmon Stuffed Avocados


If you’re on Pinterest, chances are you see a lot of stuffed avocado recipes. It makes great sense, really. They are delicious, filling, and healthy. And really, the sky’s the limit as to what you stuff them with! I had some leftover smoked salmon that needed using up, so I quickly whipped up this recipe. Smoked salmon is my favorite food and avocados are my other favorite food. So this was my favorite meal of the week!
