I don’t fry (yet) so I had my great pal Chef David Burton Sanchez prepare these for us. I took recipe notes, sipped & shot while he cooked.

My job has its downsides. I know. Boo hoo. Great chefs cook for me & I get to take pictures of them cooking for me.

The fantastic news is now we can all cook this for ourselves. Enjoy a few for an appetizer, or a few more for a main course. I would love these crispy avocados on a fresh green salad too. If you are gluten free you can easily sub in your favorite gluten free flour & GF panko.

If you are not gluten free then no bother.

Crispy Avocado Wedges with Crab Salad


    Crab Salad
  • 8 ounces Lump Crabmeat
  • 2 tablespoons Celery, small dice
  • 2 tablespoons Red Onion, small dice
  • 1 tablespoon Pickle Relish
  • 1 tablespoon Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Fresh Cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon Chipotle powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
  • Pinch of Salt & Pepper
  • Micro Greens for garnish
  • Crispy Avocado
  • 2 ripe but firm Avocado
  • 4 large Eggs, whisked
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • Pinch of Salt & Pepper
  • Vegetable Oil for frying


    Crab Salad
  • Mash the crabmeat with a fork. In another bowl combine the celery, onion, relish, mayo & seasonings. Combine with crab meat. Set aside.
  • Deep Fried Avocado
  • Fill a deep pan with some oil, a few inches will do. Use enough to cover avocados. Heat over medium high heat. If you have a deep fat frying thermometer, use it. The oil temperature should be 350 to 375 degrees F. Never over crowd the pan when you fry & make sure ingredients are dry (thats what the flour & panko are for.) Overcrowding reduces the oil temperature too much & will affect the searing of the avocado.
  • Prepare 3 breading bowls, one with seasoned flour (add some salt & pepper to the flour) another with the whisked egg and the last with panko. Slice avocado in 1/2 and carefully remove from skin, discard pits. Quarter avocados, place wedges one at a time in flour (shake off excess) dip in egg then coat well in panko.
  • Place avocado in the oil with plenty of room surrounding each piece. Cook until crispy & slightly browned. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon, top with crab salad, micro greens & serve immediately.

  1. I think this should be a new thing… let’s visit chefs, have them make something awesome, photograph it and share it with our readers. That sounds so much easier than doing it all on our own, don’t you think? These looks sooooo good!

    • Hi Lori! Yes, I really enjoy working with Chefs. I love learning food from the pros.The team work energy is amazing. Chef David is a real professional in the kitchen. We have some more recipes coming your way soon!

  2. these are beautiful! I just went on a hunt on-line for GF panko, but I am so sad that they all have dairy and eggs! I will keep looking, because those fried avocado bites are amazing!

  3. I am dying to find out the recipe for the sauce I see under those avocado wedges. Can you please share that information as well?

  4. Hey great looking recipe! Definitely want to make these this weekend! Curious what is the sauce on the plate that the avocados are resting on? I always love extra sauce for of course to dip my food in.

    Thank you
