3 large avocados
1 lemon – juice
1 pound cooked shelled shrimp coarsely chopped (reserve 6 whole shrimp)
1 hot chili pepper, peeled if fresh, seeded, washed and chopped fine
1 hard-cooked egg, chopped
2 dozen pitted green or black olives, chopped
3 tablespoon minced fresh coriander leaves or parsley
Cut avocados in half lengthwise, pit, and scoop out the flesh. Put the flesh into a bowl, and then sprinkle the shells with a little lemon juice to prevent darkening. Mash the avocado flesh with a fork.
Add the shrimp, hot pepper, egg and olives and mix well. Add enough mayonnaise, beginning with 1/3 cup, to bind the ingredients together. Pepper to taste.
Stuff the avocado shells with this mixture. Top each with one of the reserved shrimp and sprinkle with coriander.
