Avocado With Salmon Salsa

Jessica asked for this recipe. It's really phenomenal and definitely deserves its place here! I hope I'm invited to what she's making them for!

1 sm shallot, peeled and chopped
1 jalapeno chile, cored, seeded and minced (if mom comes over I only put in a little)
4 oz chopped smoked salmon (I've always used the lox kind although I just realized the recipe does not specify that)
6 cherry tomatoes, chopped
1T minced fresh cilantro
1/4t freshly ground pepper
juice of 1/2 lemon (2T)
2 small avocados, pitted and halved (the recipe says one avocado but it makes way too much filling for only two halves.
2 lemon wedges

Combine all ingredients but avocado and lemon wedges
Spoon into avocado halves and garnish with lemon wedges (I have never done that last part, myself)

These not only look cool, but they taste incredible - so rich and salty and just...mmmmmmmmm!
