From Nigella Express
Serves 2

1 tomato
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sherry vinegar
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
75g cooked peeled crayfish tails
1 ripe avocado
1 tsp chopped fresh coriander

Halve the tomato, scoop out and discard the seeds, and chop well what’s left, dropping the pieces into a bowl with the salt, sherry vinegar and olive oil. Whisk to make a dressing

Just before you want to eat stir the crayfish tails into the dressing.

Halve the avocado, remove the stone and spoon the crayfish tomato mixture into the hollows where the stone went, sprinkle with the coriander and serve at once.

I know this is more of a summer dish than a winter one but I had leftover avocado resulting from making avocado pesto pasta. Saw this simple recipe in Nigella and the rest of history. Nice natural flavours. Definitely more for summer than winter; I was starving in the office and had to eat a chocolate bar and a muffin to survive the afternoon and the gym session.
