Fried Avocado/Paleo Ranch Dressing
One of our favorite restaurants is Mas Tacos on Mcferrin Street in East Nashville. I usually order the tortilla soup, but last week I was intrigued with the menu item ” fried avocado taco” and was not disappointed. This is the way that Charlie cooks; he tasted my taco and analyzed it as to the ingredients and later researched how to fry avocados. Finally, he puts together what he read about online with his experience with cooking and experiments. His first attempt at fried avocados was definatly a winner. He also made the dressing to dip the fried avocado.
- 2 large firm avocados
- Panko bread crumbs
- 3 eggs stirred together
- Coconut oil for frying
- Flour, seasoned with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and pinch of cayenne pepper
Ingredients for Ranch Dressing
1 cup of Avocado Oil Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
2 Tsp each of Dill Weed, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, and Dried Chives
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cut the avocado into wedges. Put about 1/2 inch of oil in an iron skillet and heat to medium high. Dredge the avocado in the flour, then egg and finally Panko bread crumbs. Put in the hot oil. When it is a golden brown, turn to brown the other side. Drain on a paper towel. This recipe is best when served hot.
