Fried Avocado Wedges
If you are an avocado lover like me, then you are in for a treat! Fried avocado is one of my new favorite things to snack on and has always been a favorite wherever I go. This recipe starts with sliced avocados that are battered and fried for the ultimate crunchy deliciousness. The golden panko topping is the perfect contrast to the creamy umami center.
These bad boys only take a couple of minutes to cook, leaving you with a tasty and easy to dip appetizer that will drive everyone crazy. They’re amazing on their own, but even better when served with your favorite sauces! (You can also add your fried avocado to tacos or burrito bowls!) I paired these wedges with some cilantro ranch, but salsa frita, garlic aioli, and tomato sauce are also great options. You may want to make a double batch of these; They are so good that everyone will want to repeat.
What you will need to make them
This fried avocado recipe uses everyday ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen right now! Go make yourself a batch and thank me later. See the recipe card at the end of the post for exact measurements!
Cooking oil: You will need this to fry your avocado slices! I used vegetable oil.
avocados: For fries and wedges, I like my avocados to be firmer.
Eggs: Helps the tasty layer of panko adhere to your avocado slices.
Flour: Adds to the crisp texture of the coating.
panko breadcrumbs: Panko gives your fried avocado the perfect crunch!
italian seasoning: Adds the best touch of flavor to your avocado wedges. Try making your own Italian seasoning mix! You can find my full recipe here.
Garlic powder: You can never go wrong with garlic! Add some to your breadcrumb mix for a savory, savory flavor!
Salt: A pinch is all you need to enhance the overall flavor of this appetizer.
How to Make Avocado Deep Fries
The process is much simpler than you think! You’ll have your avocado fries crispy, golden brown and ready to eat in no time.
Prepare oil: In a deep skillet, add about 1 inch of vegetable oil and heat to 350 degrees.
Cut the avocados, prepare the dough: Peel and cut the avocados in half lengthwise, then cut into wedges. In a shallow dish add the eggs, in another dish add the flour and in the last dish add the panko, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt.
Top the avocado slices: Pass the avocado through the flour, then through the egg and finally through the panko.
Fry: Add about 4-6 strips to the hot oil and fry for about 2 minutes until golden brown. Remove and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
Can I bake my avocado fries instead?
Yes! If you want to avoid the mess of frying, you can also make avocado fries in the oven or air fryer. I have recipes for both that you will love!
Fried avocado is one of my new favorite ways to prepare it. It’s too golden and delicious to pass up! Here are a few ways to customize and perfect your batch of avocado fries.
Seasoning Swap: You can customize the flavor of your breadcrumb mix by swapping out your Italian seasoning for a dash of Cajun seasoning, lemon pepper, or blackened seasoning. A pinch of paprika or cayenne is also great for adding a hint of spice!
Use firm avocados: If you have an avocado on hand that isn’t quite soft to the touch yet, it’s perfect for making chips. You want the avocados you use to be slightly firm, so they will hold up to the breading process.
How long does fried avocado last?
If you have leftovers from your fried avocado, store them in an airtight container for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
Note: I always like to crisp up leftover avocado fries by placing them in the oven or air fryer for a few minutes at 350 degrees F.
