Nutritional values

Their valuable vegetable oils make avocados a heart-healthy fruit, even though they're high in calories and fat.  The oils help to lower cholesterol levels and strengthen the heart, and vitamin E and many B vitamins also contribute to heart health. 

If you don't want to use caviar, then simply use small shrimps or North Sea crabs instead. They have a similar fat and protein content.
