Avocado Fries with Lime Dipping Sauce

A healthy appetizer or snack, you can easily make half or quarter the recipe if you are eating alone (perfect way to use up those leftover avocados). There’s a local restaurant by me the makes avocado fries, which of course they deep fry. It’s such an unusual way to serve avocados other than making guacamole or making avocado toast (Did you know I have an entire section devoted to avocado obsessed recipes)! So of course I had to make these myself, I tested them in the air fryer and they came out crispy and golden on the outside, warm and soft on the inside using just a few spritzes of olive oil, so much healthier! I’ve also tried them in the oven, they come out fine too. The dipping sauce is a must in my opinion, it ties the whole thing together.

The avocado and lime dipping sauce is seasoned with a chili lime seasoning I am pretty obsessed with called Tajin (affil link) that I think would be a great addition to your spice cabinet, is so good on salmon, tacos, scrambled eggs, steak, avocado toast and even mango or cucumbers! The ingredients are ground chile peppers, salt and dehydrated lime juice, it’s not spicy and has no MSG. I believe Trader Joe’s makes a similar one but you can swap it with chili powder and salt if you wish, you just won’t get the tang from the dehydrated lime juice.

  1. Preheat the air-fryer 390F degrees.
  2. Place egg in a shallow bowl. On another plate, combine panko with 1 teaspoon Tajin.
  3. Season avocado wedges with 1/4 teaspoon Tajin.  Dip each piece first in egg, and then in panko.
  4. Spray both sides with oil then transfer to the air fryer and cook 7 to 8 minutes turning halfway. Serve hot with dipping sauce.
