Smoked salmon-filled avocados are one of the most effortless keto lunches that you could make. All you need is the salmon, sour cream, avocados, and seasoning! This recipe is excellent for those of you who are doing keto on your own, as it’s just a single serving. You can easily double, triple, or even quadruple this recipe to feed more people.
The trick to this recipe is to make sure that you use perfectly ripe avocados. Look for fruit that feels firm, but yields to gentle pressure. If you’re buying them a few days before making this recipe, then select avocados that are a bit under-ripe and allow them to soften in a paper bag. A ripe avocado is creamy, can easily be scooped with a spoon, and goes perfectly with the sour cream.
If you want something even richer, then try making this with mayonnaise in place of the sour cream. Don’t forget the squeeze of lemon, as it keeps the avocados from turning brown too quickly. This recipe is unlikely to keep well, so make sure you eat this right after it’s made.
