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.
3. 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.
