Crispy Avocado Wedges Recipe

How to make Crispy Avocado Wedges


  1. Make the dipping sauce first. Add mayonnaise, sour cream, basil, parsley and lemon zest to a small bowl and stir well to combine. Then refrigerate while you prepare the avocados.   
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan on medium heat.
  3. Place the avocado quarters on a tray, lined with baking paper. Pour the beaten eggs into a shallow bowl and place the panko bread crumbs in another shallow bowl.
  4. Dip avocado quarters in the egg, then coat in the bread crumbs. Place them back on the lined trays.
  5. Fry the breaded avocados in the oil, flipping every 20-30 seconds until golden brown all over.
  6. While they are frying, line the baking tray with paper towel. Place the cooked avocados on the paper towel to drain and cool slightly.
  7. Place the warm avocados on a serving tray, spinkle with salt and serve immediately with the dipping sauce.

Tip: Ensure oil is not too hot, so you can slowly and gently brown the avocado wedges. For a healthier option, you can bake instead of fry. Skip steps 2, 5 and 6. Once the avocados are breaded and on the trays, spray them with a little olive oil and bake in a preheated oven at 200°C (180°C fan-forced) for 10-12 minutes.

Optional: You can substitute or add other chopped herbs, like coriander or chives, in the dipping sauce.
