Here's What to Do with That Other Half of Avocado - Tuna Avocado Boat

One half of avocado went to my Philadelphia roll, and here's what I've done for the other half.

Tuna avocado boat -


  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 can/about 136 grams tuna
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeño
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Some salt
  • Some black pepper
  • Some toast, bread, or crackers (to eat with)


Use half of the avocado and remove the pit. Scoop out some avocado and transfer to a medium bowl. Make sure to leave about 2mm along the edge to hold up the boat shape. 

Finely chop the parsley and jalapeño. Drain the canned tuna. Toast the bread if using, and slice to smaller pieces.

Take the bowl with avocado scooped out earlier, also add in most of the chopped parsley, all the jalapeño, drained tuna, lemon juice, also some salt and pepper to taste. Mix and smash, give it a try and see if more salt or pepper is needed. Transfer this mixture back to the avocado boat. Serve some bread, toasts, or crackers on the side.

Easy on the salt in the beginning since canned tuna can be seasoned already. Mix these ingredients first, then taste and adjust afterward. 

Instead of the same old avocado spread or guacamole, tuna avocado boat was kind of cool, especially its own skin was used as a container. Switch up the tastes once a while, keep it fun and more delicious creations will come.
