  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 8 Peppadew piquante peppers, chopped (mild or hot)
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 tbsp sweetcorn kernels
  • Small bunch fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 avocado


  • First, prepare the spicy tomato salsa. Add the chopped spring onions to a bowl, along with the Peppadews, tomatoes, corn and basil. Add some lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil, and a good pinch of salt and pepper, and mix well to combine. Set aside.
  • Cut the avocado in half, and remove the pit. If cooking on the hob, heat a griddle pan on a very high heat, then place the avocado in the pan cut-side down. Cook for around 30 seconds, then remove. Or, if cooking on a BBQ, place the avocado cut-side down on the grill over a medium heat, and cook for a minute or so, until lightly charred. Watch carefully to prevent burning.
  • Serve the grilled avocado halves stuffed with the spicy tomato salsa.
