This recipe is by Chef May Yacoubi.


  • 2 avocado (ripe yet firm ) - أفوكادو
  • 2 eggs (beaten) - بيض
  • 1 1/2 cup breadcrumbs - بقسماط
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest - قشر الليمون
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt - ملح البحر
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin - كمون
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder - بودرة ثوم
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika - بابريكا / فلفل أحمر
  • vegetable oil (for frying) - زيت نباتي
  • Dip:
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise - مايونيز
  • handful coriander - كزبرة
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice - عصير ليمون
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic (minced) - ثوم

Step by step

  1. In a medium bowl, mix breadcrumbs, lemon zest, cumin, salt and paprika. Set aside.
  2. Peel avocados, cut in half and deseed. Then slice them vertically making wedges. Set aside.
  3. Beat eggs and season with salt.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan. I love using a Chinese wok as the avocado will not need more than 2 minutes to cook and the wok transfers the heat really fast making them really crunchy with a nice golden color without being soggy.
  5. Coat avocado wedges with breadcrumbs making sure it is all covered. Dip them in the beaten eggs and put them back in the breadcrumbs mixture to coat more.
  6. Fry coated avocado wedges for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden.
  7. Once golden, take them out and put them on kitchen paper to absorb excess oil. Allow them to dry for 10 minutes.
  8. Serve the wedges in a flat serving tray and with Coriander Lemon Dipping Sauce.
  9. For the Coriander Lemon Dipping Sauce: Blend mayonnaise, chopped coriander, lime juice and garlic until smooth and creamy in texture, and the dip is vibrant green.
