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.

The great BIG bonus is I get to share these with you.

And that I got to eat ’em.

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

Yep. I pinch myself regularly.

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.

Oh by the way. Someone just got his new bicycle & is overjoyed!

He had lots of this avocado when we stayed at The Osprey Beaver Creek for Spring Break.

    1. New bikes are the best! He is in heaven 🙂 Even better when you can come home from a long ride & munch on crispy avocados 😉

  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!

    1. 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. Fried avocado on its own is already delicious but pairing it with crab salad is genius. What a great way to elevate a classic crab salad!

  5. 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
