Avocado Fries

Is it even possible to mess up an avocado? Plain, on a sandwich, in guacamole — however they are prepared, avocados simply can't help but be delicious. In fact, these avocado fries might just be too much of a good thing.

Ingredients

Avocado Fries
1 avocado, sliced into 1/4-inch slices
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. flour
1 egg, beaten
Canola oil, for frying

Lime Sriracha Mayonnaise
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Juice of 1/2 lime
Sriracha, or other spicy chili sauce

Directions

Avocado Fries

1. Fill a skillet with oil until it is about 1/4- to 1/2-inch full. Heat on high until oil sputters when a drop of water is dropped in.

2. Place the milk, flour and egg in three separate shallow dishes. Beat about 1 tbs. of water into the egg mixture. Dunk a slice of avocado in milk, then flour, then eggs, then back in flour. Place each slice on a plate until you’ve dunked the whole batch in batter.

3. Slowly add the slices to the oil. You don’t want to overcrowd the pan, so stop before they all start touching each other. After about a minute, you’ll see the edges turning brown. This means it's time to flip them over. Allow them to cook for another minute, then remove them from the skillet and place on a plate lined with paper towels.

Lime Sriracha Mayonnaise

To make the mayonnaise, mix together the mayo, lime juice and Sriracha. Add the Sriracha to taste, depending on how spicy you want it. Serve with your avocado fries and enjoy!
