Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place delicata squash on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut the tips and tails off of the squash.
Drizzle squash with avocado oil (or high-temperature cooking oil of choice) and use your hands to spread it all over the exposed flesh so that it is well-coated. Sprinkle the flesh with sea salt.
Place squash cut-side down on a large baking sheet. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, until squash is very soft when poked with a fork.
