How do you make avocado fries?
This recipe starts with a couple of avocados. You want to be sure that you’re using firm avocados here so that they hold up to the breading and frying process. The avocado slices are dredged in seasoned flour, egg and panko breadcrumbs to create an ultra crispy coating. Then the avocado slices are quickly pan fried until browned.
Tips for avocado fries
- You don’t need a lot of oil for this, a 1/4 inch layer of vegetable oil on the bottom of the pan is fine.
- You’ll need to cook the avocado slices in batches; if you end up with a lot of dark bits at the end of the first few batches, simple wipe out the pan and add a new layer of oil on the bottom.
- I like to serve my avocado fries with plenty of dipping sauces; in these photos I show the fries with a store bought chili lime ranch. Other great options are salsa (red or green), chipotle mayo, or my creamy cilantro sauce.
These avocado fries are best served immediately out of the pan so that they’re hot and crispy. You can add a squeeze of lime juice and a sprinkling of cilantro if you like, or simply serve them as-is and watch them disappear!
