Summer is nearly here, and many of us our in search of that special treat to present at your next gathering of friends and family… it’s Panko Crusted Florida Avocado Fingers, and we think you’ll agree… they’re Positively Delicious!
- 2 Florida avocados, peeled, seeded and sliced
- ½ lime, juiced
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 2 cups panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
- Nonstick cooking spray Olive oil for drizzling
- Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with the nonstick cooking spray. In a mixing bowl add the avocado slices and lime juice, season lightly with salt and pepper. Carefully toss avocados to coat. Remove seasoned avocado slices from bowl and coat them completely with the flour. Dip each flour coated avocado slice into the beaten egg to coat. Coat each egg dipped avocado slice with panko.
Place each evenly coated avocado slice on the cookie sheet. Lightly drizzle olive oil onto the coated avocado slices. Place avocado slices into the preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.
