  • 2-3 large ripe avocados
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 TBS cornstarch
  • 2 TBS garlic powder
  • 1 TBS smoked paprika
  • 1 TBS cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 355 ml soda water
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup salsa verde
  • 1/2 cup creamy garlic dipping sauce
  • to serve: spicy mayo chopped chives, lime wedge


  • Cut avocadoes into french fries. Carefully remove the peel, half each avocado and remove the pit. Slice each half into 5 fries.
  • Combine flour, cornstarch, spices and salt and pepper into a bowl. Add breadcrumbs to a separate bowl. Slowly pour the soda water into the flour mixture to create a thick batter. Whisk until smooth and no clumps. Mixture should ressemble thick pancake mix. Add a touch of water if needed to smooth it out.
  • To dredge, start by dipping each avocado fry into the wet batter and coat both sides into the breadcrumbs. Repeat until all the fries are done.
  • Heat vegetable oil to 350 degrees. Once hot, carefully drop fries careful not to overcrowd. Cook 1 minute per side or until golden, flipping. Do in batches until all the fries are done.
  • Mix together the salsa verde with the creamy garlic dip.
  • To serve: serve avocado fries with creamy garlic salsa verde dip, drizzle with spicy mayo, garnish with fresh chives. Enjoy!
