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


  • Slice the avocado in half and remove the seed.
  • Mash the tinned salmon in a bowl with a fork.
  • Add the cream cheese and lemon juice, with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 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!
