Soft on the inside, with a crispy coating, avocado fries are the perfect deep-fried savory snack or appetizer.


  • 2 avocados, sliced into thin wedges and peels removed
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs (or panko crumbs)
  • pinch, garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • canola/vegetable oil for frying

Ginger soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground (or fresh grated) ginger

Garlic lime aioli (fancy mayo)

  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 12 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • half a lime, juice squeezed
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sriracha
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix together aioli ingredients in a small serving bowl. Stir well. Add ginger and soy sauce to another small serving both and place both in fridge.
  2. Place flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs intro three separate bowls, and set aside. Note: you may want to start by adding 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs and add more as you need it. The breadcrumbs tend to clump together when breading. This will keep the coating more even.
  3. Slice avocados in half lengthwise, remove the seeds, and slice into 1/2 inch wedges lengthwise with the skin still on. Carefully peel the skin off each sliced wedge. This keeps your slices intact as you cut.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a medium saucepan with 1-2 inches of oil to medium-high heat.
  5. Dredge slices in flour, then egg, and then coat in breadcrumbs. Set aside.
  6. Once the oil is hot, fry 2-3 avocado slices at a time for roughly 15 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon and set on a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving with aioli and ginger soy sauce.


You want the avocados to be perfectly ripe, not hard but not too mushy. Maybe a pinch firmer than your ideal “guacamole-ready” avocados. These can alternatively be baked at 400°F for about 15-20 minutes or until golden. Have an air fryer? That should work too.
