Avocado Fries

avocado fries

Remember Nur? She was the one who posted this and this. She sent me this link to make avocado fries from Circle B Kitchen.

My first reaction was "Wah? Avocado fries?" Yeah, I have never heard of such a thing before! It looks pretty easy so I decided to make it.


All you need is two avocados. Halve them and remove the pits. I find it's easier to use not so ripe avocados because they're firmer and easier to handle.

Slice the halves into fours and peel off the skin.

Set out a plate with 1/4 cup of flour.

Beat 2 eggs. If you are like the Bui sisters, you beat eggs with a pair of chopsticks.

Then set up another plate with about 1/2 cup of panko.

That should be the order to dip the avocado slice. Flour, egg, panko. Or, if you want, sprinkle a bit a salt before coating them with flour.

So, flour.

Then egg.

Then panko!

Then we're done! I mean, not done done, but done with the prepping. Turn on the oven to 200 degrees F.

Heat up about 1 1/2" of vegetable oil. When dipping your chopsticks (or tongs) into the oil and bubbles start to form at the tip, it's time to fry!

Fry until they're all golden, like so:

Remove from oil and let drain on a some paper towels. Keep the fries warm in the oven. Serve immediately when all fries have been ... fried.

I must say, the fries are delicious. My sister, who took most of these photos, gave the fries a 3.75 out of 5 and she hates avocados. Success!

Here's the condensed version of what just happened.

Ingredients:

2 semi ripe avocados - sliced
1/4 cup of flour
2 eggs - beaten
1/2 cup of panko
salt
oil for frying

Preparation:

Dip sliced avocado into flour, shake off excess flour, then dip it in the egg, then panko.

Heat up 1 1/2" of oil in a pot or a deep fryer.
Heat up to the oven to 200 degrees F.
Fry the avocados until they are golden.
Remove from oil and let drain on a paper towel in the oven to keep warm.
Serve immediately!
