Mestizo's Restaurant: Fried avocado
BATON ROUGE - Chef Jim Urdiales of Mestizo's Restaurant visited News 2 at 4 today to show us how to prepare a dish with a dash of green with St. Patrick's Day just around the corner: fried avocado.
While you may be more accustomed to seeing the avocado in guacamole, the chef's fried twist is a savory and unique treat that is sure to please when it hits the table.
-1 ripe avocado
-1 cup of buttermilk
-1 cup of seasoned flour
-1 cup of panko bread crumbs
Preparing the dish requires only a few simple steps. First, cut each avocado into quarters. Next, dredge each piece in the seasoned flour and finish with a second dredging in the bread crumbs. Finish it up by frying the breaded avocado in oil for 2 minutes.
