Tuna and Avocado Skewers

I made my own guacamole a few weeks ago and since then I’ve been on an avocado kick.

This recipe comes compliments of a food blogger who likes to give you

ingredients but not amounts of the ingredients. Which drives me nuts given the minor OCD haunting my brain.  It is also liberating to just wing it with a pile of food.


slices of fresh tuna

ripe avocado



mint leaves

basil leaves

dried oregano

Maldon salt


Cut tuna into pieces big enough to be skewered and do the same with avocado. Put them in two separate bowls to marinate with lime juice, olive oil, red pepper (fresh chilli would be better), mint leaves, basil leaves and dried oregano. Let it marinate about thirty minutes.

In the meantime light up the BBQ. When the grill is hot, and the embers below have done their duty, place tuna and avocado skewers over the BBQ and brown them for about 2 minutes per side, not more. Drizzle with their marinade (and pay attention to the backfire when you pouryour marinade on skewers, I can say this from my experience!) while cooking: when the tuna is cooked, just on the outside, remove them and place the skewers on a plate.

Season with Maldon salt flakes.
