  3. If you are using only half an avocado, keep the one with seed for later. I use this avocado keeper to avoid oxidation. You can also squeeze lemon juice on the surface.

Recipe Notes

Flake Sea Salt: This salt has soft, sheer, pyramid-like flakes, which give food a beautiful look and crunchy finish. This salt will add a complex, a hint of briny flavor to the food. England’s Essex coast is where the most popular brand, Maldon, is harvested.
