avocado fries

Prep 10 minutes  cook: 5 minutes

Canola oil for frying

¼ cup all-purpose flour

¼ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 ¼ cups panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)

2 firm ripe avocados, cut into ½ inch wedges

Pour oil to depth of 1 2/2 inches in a medium saucepan or dutch oven. Heat to 375 degrees over medium high heat

Meanwhile, combine flour and salt in a shallow plate. Put eggs and panko in separate shallow plates. Dip avocado wedges in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg and then dredge panko to coat.

Fry avocado wedges, in batches, 30 to 60 seconds or until golden brown and drain on paper towels. Place on a baking sheet in a 200 degree oven to keep warm while frying remaining wedges. Sprinkle with additional salt to taste. Makes 6 servings.
