Ingredients
  • canola oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten

    3. Put eggs and panko bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls.
    4. Sprinkle the avocado slices with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt.

    6. Set slices on plates in a single layer.
    7. Fry a few avocado slices at a time until golden brown, about 30 to 60 seconds.
    8. Transfer slices to a plate lined with paper towels.
    9. Sprinkle with salt and a little grated parmesan.
    10. Serve warm, with your choice of dipping sauce (Ranch is a good option).
