Interesting Dish - Deep Fried Stuffed Avocado - Rivera's Severna Park

Warthog | Dec 5, 2007 04:20 AM

Last night, I was down at Rivera's Mexican restaurant in Severna Park (Benfield Blvd., just east of Jumpers Hole - same strip mall as the Chinese place and the Vietnamese restaurant/bakery), and found an interesting dish on the menu. I often find something I've not seen before on a menu, and I often find really good dishes on a menu, but I seldom find a really good dish that I'd not seen before. This is one.

It was a medium size avocado, peeled, halved, pitted, then stuffed with a crab-cake-sized portion of crab, batter dipped and deep fried. The avocado and the crab go well together, and the batter coating is thin, and properly fired so it's crisp, not greasy. It was really a pleasant surprise. The restaurant itself is probably not worth a long drive for, but that dish was interesting enough that I thought I'd mention it, both for anybody who lives nearby, and for the home cooks among us looking for interesting ideas for experimentation.

They also offer the same dish, substituting chicken (presumably shredded, as for enchilada or burrito filling) for the crab.
