  • Beer-Battered Fried Avocado Wedges with Salsa by Bean

    Posted March 15, 2006 04:56 AM

    I tried these last night. Very good!

    I added 1 heaping T. crushed red pepper and chopped cilantro in with the batter. They were real good, but I think my avocado was a little too ripe. Next time I'd use one that was just beginning to turn color so it holds up better(nice and firm). They need a spicy salsa, cheese dip and/or hot sauce for dipping.

    Beer-Battered Fried Avocado Wedges with Salsa

    1 cup lager beer or ale (I used Pacifico)
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
    2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
    2 California avocados
    Vegetable oil as needed for deep frying
    Salt as needed
    1 cup salsa

    To make beer batter, whisk together beer, flour, paprika, and garlic until well blended. Let stand at least 2 hours.

    Peel avocados; cut each into 6 wedges. Dredge 6 wedges in reserved beer batter. Deep fry in hot oil until golden about 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining wedges.

    Serve with salsa.
