Aguacate Relleno (Stuffed Avocado with Smoked Salmon and Egg). Here’s a dish that can be served for breakfast or lunch. There is nothing like a trio of avocado, egg, and smoked salmon. Vibrant colors, equally tantalizing in taste and texture. Come with us and discover Colombia through food!

It’s been a while……………….

Wow, how time flies. The last time we did a post for Eat the World was many months ago. I really missed it. When Nicoletta told me that Colombia was the next destination on our journey of the world through food, I was really excited to dive right back in.

Colombia………

To me, Colombia is a culture of food, dance and so much more. When researching recipes, I found so many I wanted to do. There were soups, stews, imagine a loaded Colombian hotdog, however when I saw these Aguacate Relleno, Stuffed Avocado, they seemed to really capture me consequently having me at the market picking up a nice ripe avocado, and some smoked salmon and a few other things.

I love avocado……………

Honestly, I didn’t start my foodie relationship with avocado till I was an adult. It is not something you see on an Italian table. I remember having it in guacamole and it was delicious and so, as a result, it has become something we try having often. In this recipe, it is stuffed with an egg then baked and some salmon added after the fact. I am so excited for you to try this, so let’s get right down to it and we can ride the flavor train to Colombia and make these Aguacate Relleno (Stuffed Avocado with Smoked Salmon and Egg).

Eggs in the hole…………

Look at how lovely the eggs look nestled in that bowl of pure flavor richness. Yum! So, this is what we need to do:

  1. Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit. Scoop some of the bowl out and brush with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and just a pinch of paprika.
  2. Crack some small eggs into the bowl of the avocado and season again. Sprinkle some finely chopped green onion and place into a preheated oven at 300 degrees F. Bake until eggs are cooked to your liking. I cooked mine a bit longer, wanted a firmer yolk.
  3. Take out of the oven.

Looking pretty yummy so far, don’t you think?…….

That baked avocado with the egg looks stupendous. I can’t wait to try it, however, we have to put the finishing touches on, first:

  1. I shredded up some romaine lettuce and then I nestled the stuffed avocados onto a plate where I made a bed of lettuce.
  2. Now, time to layer the smoked salmon and put it on one side. A bit of fresh dill and finely chopped green onion, and we are just about there.
  3. Just a smidge of olive oil and a couple of sides, like salsa and basil lemon Dijon, and we are set. Time to eat!

Food presented beautifully touches the deepest of foodie hearts………………

I love the look of these. They make me feel light and joyful, similar to a warm sunny bright day! I can smell the smokiness of the salmon and that hint of earthy sweet dill. The mustard is going to add a nice kick and the salsa, well, I love the zing it brings to the table with just a slight bit of heat.

Tasting time…………

The nice thing about these stuffed avocados is very easy to eat. You can do it with a fork and knife, or use a spoon. Whatever your heart desires! My first bite reveals some pretty rich and velvety flavors. The avocado is the star and it partners so well with the egg.

The yolk offers a beautiful creaminess to the mix with its luscious flavor bathing the avocado. I like the smokiness of the salmon and its flavor, consequently waking up my taste buds to no end. The dill is beautiful and with the addition of the Dijon and those hits of basil and lemon along with the tomato salsa, this is definitely an extravaganza of flavor and texture.

Final thoughts……………..

The world is going through some tough times, people are feeling the change of a world we once knew and holding onto hope for that to return. It is in times like these that we stand together and hold each other in a virtual embrace.

We can still celebrate and there is no better way than food! So glad you took this ride on the Eat the World flavor train. Give this Aguacate Relleno (Stuffed Avocado with Smoked Salmon and Egg) a try. It’s easy, simple, yet so sophisticated in presentation and flavor. Welcome to Colombia!

Cheers!
