So it seems like I’ve been on a roll with the deep frying, but it will be the last! Well, not until a very long while at least. I’ve made avocado fries in the past, and it’s practically the same, except for the fact that the avocado is cut into rings instead of wedges. I’m not sure why I never thought about cutting the avocados in this way before, but it’s kind of neat, isn’t it? So let’s get to the recipe!
1 large avocado
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup of flour
1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs
To begin, cut your avocado into rings by first making a cut at the middle, along the width of the avocado, then grab each end of the avocado and twist then pull apart. You’ll end up with two halves, and to remove the seed, take the knife and whack it right in the centre of the seed, twist and pull. The seed should be stuck onto the knife and detached from the avocado. Then, all you do is slice your avocado into rings and remove the peel from each one.
Now, prepare three bowls containing one of beaten egg, one with flour and one with panko bread crumbs. Once your station is set, heat up your oil at medium to medium-high heat for deep frying. While the oil is heating up, prepare your avocados for deep frying. First, dust the avocado with flour, and then dip it into the beaten egg, and finally, coat it with the panko bread crumbs.
Deep fry the avocado rings until both sides are golden brown, then remove and place onto plate with paper towel to soak up the excess oil, then serve immediately! You can enjoy it as is, or you can make a simple sriracha aioli by mixing some mayo with sriracha.
