Avocado Fries Recipe

These avocado fries are a very unique and delicious appetizer. If you are looking for something different to serve at a party or just to make at home, you should give this recipe a try. Basically this recipe consists of sliced avocados that are rolled in breadcrumbs and then fried until golden brown. Rolling the avocado slices in the breading mixture does require a little work, but its well worth it. The coated avocados do not take very long to cook in the oil, so be careful not to burn them. They should be golden brown in about 30-60 seconds. The highlight of this recipe is the cilantro ranch dipping sauce. This delicious sauce combines ingredients such as fresh cilantro, sea salt, ranch dressing, Greek yogurt, and lemon juice. Enjoy.

¼ cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs (beaten)
1 ¼ cups Panko breadcrumbs
2 firm-ripe avocados (pitted, peeled, and sliced into ½” wedges)
Canola oil (for frying)
Grated parmesan cheese (optional)
Cilantro Ranch Dipping Sauce-
¼ cup non-fat Greek Yogurt (or sour cream)
pinch of sea salt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon cilantro (chopped)
1 tablespoon ranch dressing

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a small bowl combine yogurt, a pinch sea salt, lemon juice, cilantro, and ranch dressing. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
Step 2: Add 1 ½ inches of oil in a medium saucepan and heat the oil until it reaches 375 degrees. You can also use a deep fryer for this. While the oil is heating, in a shallow plate or pie dish mix flour with ½ teaspoon of salt. In another shallow plate, add the Panko bread crumbs, and in an additional shallow plate, add the eggs.
Step 3: Sprinkle avocado slices with the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt. Roll each avocado slice first in the flour mixture, then dip in the egg mixture, and roll in the Panko breadcrumbs to coat. Place onto a baking sheet in a single layer.

Step 4: Add avocado slices to the hot oil in the sauce pan or deep fryer and fry in batches at 375 degrees until golden brown (this should only take about 30-60 seconds). Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese if desired and serve with cilantro ranch dipping sauce.
(Makes 4 Servings)

    I love frying slices of avocado and serving them as toppings for tacos. I bet the cilantro ranch sauce would be great in tacos too!

    Looks great, and not too bad for a treat in small portions, sauce particularly looks quite sensible. Not sure any added salt is needed though to either coating or dipping, what with all those great flavours happening, perhaps the calling for salt was just instinctive.
