Ingredients

Fried Avocados

  • 3 avocados
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • vegetable oil

Sauce

  • 1 ripe mango about 2 cups
  • 8-10 fresh cilantro leaves or to taste
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 - 1 tbsp honey depends on how sweet your mangoes are
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Mango Lime Slaw

  • 4 oz shredded cabbage
  • salt to taste

Tacos

  • 8-10 small corn tortillas

Instructions

  1. Start by preparing the sauce and slaw. In a blender, add the 5 ingredients under "sauce" and blend. Then pour 1/3-1/2 cup of sauce to shredded cabbage and mix well. Add salt to taste. Save the rest of the sauce for later.

  2. Slice avocados, and sprinkle garlic powder and salt generously on both sides of the avocados.

  3. Prepare a bowl of panko breading and another bowl of whisked egg. Dip avocados into egg mixture and then evenly coat them with panko breading.

  4. Heat up vegetable oil in pan. Once oil is bubbly, add breaded avocados. Cook both sides of avocados until they turn golden brown.

  5. Warm corn tortillas in microwave for about 20 seconds (do 5 tortillas at a time). Add additional time if needed. You can also warm tortilla using a pan (no oil necessary).

  6. Add fried avocados and slaw to corn tortilla. Garnish with fresh cilantro. Spoon sauce onto fried avocados.

  7. Consume immediately and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I start by preparing the sauce and slaw, and then the avocados. This way, once the avocados are fried, I can combine and serve immediately to prevent the avocados from turning cold and soggy.
