Salmon Stuffed Avocados
You can use canned salmon for this recipe but I prefer using fresh salmon grilled in the oven and letting it cool. But if you can’t, no worries canned salmon combined with avocados makes and easy no-cook meal. Enjoy!
Time: 15 Minutes
- ½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- ½ cup diced celery
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon ground pepper
- 2 (5 ounce) cans salmon, drained, flaked, skin and bones removed
- 2 avocados
- Chopped chives for garnish
Combine yogurt, celery, parsley, lime juice, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl; mix well. Add salmon and mix well.
Halve avocados lengthwise and remove pits. Scoop about 1 tablespoon flesh from each avocado half into a small bowl. Mash the scooped-out avocado flesh with a fork and stir into the salmon mixture.
Fill each avocado half with about 1/4 cup of the salmon mixture, mounding it on top of the avocado halves. Garnish with chives, if desired.

SO happy you love it, Kathie! WOW so cool love it, thank you for sharing
Love your avocado salmon recipe. I’ve been lucky to have enjoyed avocados since childhood. Our 1928 house was built in what had been an avocado grove. Favorite snack was avocado on warm whole wheat bread with a little salt. Still a treat for me!!!
