fried avocados

made these for ben, as well as my bro-in-law and his fiancée. everyone was very pleased. the texture is just so fun and they aren't super difficult to fry. just be sure to have a good set of tongs to turn the avocados in the hot pan. ingredients:
oil for frying (i used grape seed oil)
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


directions:
Preheat oven to 200° (if desired). In a medium saucepan, heat oil on high.

Meanwhile, mix flour with 1/2 tsp. salt in a shallow plate. Put eggs and panko in separate shallow plates.

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 plate(s) in a single layer.


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.

recipe adapted from here and photo also (they were too good, so eaten too fast).
