I’ve recently started using the website pinterest.com – if you’re not familiar with it, it’s pretty awesome! Especially the food section, which has lead me to write this blog post.
I came across a recipe today that sounded so good and so unique that I had to share – avocado fries!
Let me preface this recipe by saying there is no way I will ever make these myself. I have a no-fry rule at home. Not only does it keep me from making a huge mess, but it stops me from eating so much fried food. However, if I ever knew anyone that wanted to make these or if I happened upon them on a restaurant menu, they would be all mine! So to all you fry kings and queens out there, you are welcome over anytime as long as you bring me some of these
Avocado Fries Recipe from Circle B Kitchen
- Canola oil for frying
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 2 large eggs, beaten to blend
- 1 1/4 cups panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
- 2 firm-ripe medium avocados, pitted, peeled, and sliced into 1/2-in. wedges
- Grated parmesan for serving (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 200°. In a medium saucepan, heat 1 1/2 in. oil until it registers 375° on a deep-fry thermometer.
2. Meanwhile, mix flour with 1/2 tsp. salt in a shallow plate. Put eggs and panko in separate shallow plates.
3. Sprinkle the avocado slices with the remaining ½ tsp salt. Dip each slice in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, then panko to coat. Set on 2 plates in a single layer.
4. Fry a quarter of avocado slices at a time until deep golden, 30 to 60 seconds. Transfer slices to a plate lined with paper towels. Keep warm in oven while cooking remaining avocados. Sprinkle with salt and a little grated parmesan.
Note: There are several comments on the blog where I found this that mention baking the fries. Now that I may try!
