3 GRILLED AVOCADO RECIPE IDEAS

Common questions about grilling avocados

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GRILL AN AVOCADO?

We recommend 2-3 minutes on medium heat for both the grill and the oven broiler method.

WHAT TEMPERATURE IS BEST
FOR GRILLING AVOCADOS?

We recommend setting your grill to medium heat. Medium heat typically ranges from 300–350 degrees Fahrenheit or 149-177 degrees Celsius on a grill.

HOW DO I CUT AN AVOCADO FOR GRILLING?

We recommend placing the avocado on a cutting board and then cutting it in half lengthwise around the pit. Next, twist halves apart, and lift pit out with a spoon. We recommend leaving the skin on for best grilling results.

DOES MY GRILL NEED TO BE CLEAN
BEFORE GRILLING AVOCADOS?

We recommend that you burn off any food left over on the grates before grilling avocados. A clean grill will likely cook food better, and it will also be more likely to be free of residue that could possibly contaminate your delicious Avocado From Mexico.
