Avocado with lime on sourdough toast

Avocado and lime are a winning combination and need nothing more than sea salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper to bring the flavours together. The avocado needs to be beautifully ripe and it is worth getting the avocado a couple of days before you need it to be sure of a softly yielding, creamy texture to contrast with the crisp toast and astringent lime.

Serves 2

1 perfectly ripe avocado
1 fresh lime
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
2 slices of sourdough bread, toasted

Peel and halve the avocado. Slice thinly and place on the hot toast. Use a microplane or fine grater to zest the lime over the avocado. Season generously with sea salt and black pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil.
