Ingredients

Fried Avocados

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

  • 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.
  • Slice avocados, and sprinkle garlic powder and salt generously on both sides of the avocados.
  • 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.
  • Heat up vegetable oil in pan. Once oil is bubbly, add breaded avocados. Cook both sides of avocados until they turn golden brown.
  • 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).
  • Add fried avocados and slaw to corn tortilla. Garnish with fresh cilantro. Spoon sauce onto fried avocados.
  • Consume immediately and enjoy!

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.
