Tuna Stuffed Avocado

Tuna stuffed avocado is a healthy and protein-packed dish that’s both delicious and easy to prepare. Here’s a simple recipe to make tuna stuffed avocados:


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 can (5 ounces) of tuna, drained
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (or Greek yogurt for a lighter option)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley or chives, for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare the Avocados:
  • Cut the ripe avocados in half lengthwise, and remove the pits. Use a spoon to carefully scoop out some of the flesh from each half, creating a small well to hold the tuna salad. Be sure to leave a border of avocado flesh around the edges.
  1. Prepare the Tuna Salad:
  • In a bowl, combine the drained tuna, diced red onion, diced celery, mayonnaise (or Greek yogurt), and lemon juice. Mix everything together until well combined.
  1. Season the Tuna Salad:
  • Season the tuna salad with salt and black pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning to your preference.
  1. Fill the Avocado Halves:
  • Spoon the tuna salad mixture into the wells of the avocado halves, dividing it evenly among them. Press the salad down gently to fill the avocados without overfilling.
  1. Garnish:
  • If desired, garnish the stuffed avocados with chopped fresh parsley or chives for added flavor and presentation.
  1. Serve:
  • Serve the tuna stuffed avocados immediately as a light and satisfying meal.

Tuna stuffed avocados make for a nutritious and filling lunch or snack. The combination of creamy avocado and savory tuna salad is both satisfying and packed with protein and healthy fats. Feel free to customize the salad with additional ingredients like diced tomatoes, chopped pickles, or herbs to suit your taste.
