Canned salmon has edible bones which are a great source of calcium and magnesium. Substitute the cream cheese with sour cream if you prefer.

Preparation time: 5 mins Cook time: 0 mins Serves: 1


  • 1 whole ripe avocado
  • 70g tin canned salmon in brine, drained
  • 50g cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • dill or parsley to garnish


  1. Slice the avocado in half and remove the seed.
  2. Mash the tinned salmon in a bowl with a fork.
  3. Add the cream cheese and lemon juice, with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Place the stuffing in each hole of the avocado and garnish with dill or parsley if you have any available.

Tip: Tinned salmon is a cheaper and more accessible option, but try to choose wild-caught salmon where possible – it’s healthier for you and the oceans!
