Deep-fried avocado is a dish prepared using avocado that has been breaded or battered and deep-fried. Panko bread crumbs are sometimes used. The dish can be stuffed with meats, cheese and other ingredients. The avocado inside the breading or batter may melt after the deep frying occurs. Deep-fried avocado with an egg placed inside the avocado is a breakfast dish. Deep-fried avocado is also used as a main ingredient in deep-fried avocado tacos, as an additional ingredient or topping in tacos, and sometimes as a hamburger topping.
Avocado fries is a type of fries dish prepared using avocado instead of potatoes. The avocado is typically sliced into strips, breaded or battered, and then deep-fried. The breading or batter may be seasoned, and salt can be sprinkled atop the dish after deep-frying occurs. It is sometimes served as an appetizer or starter dish, and may be accompanied with a dipping sauce. Avocado fries can also be cooked by baking. Avocado fries have less carbohydrates compared to fries prepared using potatoes.
In 2011, attendees at the Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa, California, consumed 10,000 slices of deep-fried avocado.
