I’ve been head over heals about fried avocados after discovering them some time last year on some of my  favorite food blogs. We love avocados in my family, so frying up one of our favorite treats came natural. I knew the next logical step for my fried avocado slices would be to put them into a soft taco. I have been thinking through this recipe for several months, and finally decided to give it a whirl yesterday.

Obviously we love avocados in my family, not just because they are healthy, but because they taste so good too. I like to replace mayonnaise on sandwiches with avocados and even replace the fat in some baked goods with avocados like with these brownies. Avocados were even my son’s first solid food, and he still loves them just as much today as he did then.

I downloaded this beautiful avocado photo from their Facebook page. I just love it.

And now back to these beer battered fried avocado tacos. I hope the photos have grabbed your attention. I started by adding a simple corn salsa to the tortilla. I combined corn, red and green peppers, red onion, cilantro and fresh lime juice to make a simple complimentary salsa for my avocados.

Then after frying my avocado slices in a spicy beer batter, I drizzled a spicy mayonnaise on top consisting of fresh cilantro, lime juice, a serrano pepper and mayonnaise. The sauce gave a nice spicy kick to the creamy delicately flavored avocados.

    I’m sorry, but I hate this. I think it’s an awful thing to do to an avocado, which is a natural, healthy food. It is also mild-flavored and oily, so battering it with something mild-flavored and oily is just overdoing it IMO. I love you, Angie, but I have strong food opinions and this is one of them.

    Angie, I’m in the LOVE camp. I love avocado and when I saw this, I thought– this I need to try! I’m not advocating deep frying, per se, but I am betting this is similar to tempura and who doesn’t love that? And the addition of sriracha and spicy mayo seals the deal! Two big yums up.

    Your recipe for fried avocados was easy and delicious! I didn’t have the ingredients for the salsa or sauce so I just made the fried avocados and my own sauce with what I had. I will be making these again and making sure I have the ingrdients for the corn salsa and mayo sauce. Thank you!

    I’d like to try this tonight so the question that jumped to mind is how ripe the avocados need to be since they are being fried. Have you found they need to rippen like when making guacamole or can they be used right from the store? Also, I’ve never made corn salsa before so I’m wondering if I should use canned or frozen. Thanks for posting a great recipe.
