Cut each avocado in half and remove the pit.
Carefully scoop out the flesh, in neat teaspoonfuls or using a melon ball cutter, and place it in a mixing bowl.
Set the avocado skins aside.
Add the celery, apples, shrimp and mayonnaise to the avocado flesh and season very well with salt and pepper.
Mix thoroughly together.
Re-fill the avocado skins with the avocado mixture.
Place in heatproof avocado dishes, or directly on the rack of a broiler pan.
Sprinkle the avocados with the Gruyere, then cook under a very hot broiler until the cheese melts and turns golden brown.
Garnish each avocado with a twist of lemon and sprigs of parsley.
