Fried Avocado Fries Recipe (9.13.12 – Day 31) Snack, Appetizer, Game Day, Party

I have never been able to eat avocado by itself. This summer I saw a lot of people posting about grilled avocado and I saw some post on from avocado. It intrigued me, but I guess it still wasn’t a big enough push. Recently I was at a sushi restaurant and ordered one of my favorites, Sweet Potato Tempura. Surprisingly, that was just the push I need to try to fry avocados.

Fried Avocado Fries Recipe

 

Ingredients:

1 ripe avocado
Oil for frying
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

Cut the avocado in half length wise. Turn each half opposite one another and pull apart. Remove the exposed seed with a spoon or knife.

Remove the meat of the avocado by scooping it away from the skin with a spoon.

Lay the two halves of avocado meat onto a cutting board, and cut each half into 4 equal segments.

Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium high heat.

In a small bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, salt, and black pepper. Dip each slice of avocado into the flour mixture. Once coated, remove them from the flour and dust off excess.

Fry each breaded avocado slice in the heated oil for 1 – 2 minutes on each side. Place of a paper towel to remove the extra oil.
