Guacamole Bites with Hot Wasabi Mayo

A few weeks ago, I found a recipe for baked guacamole fries on Pinterest and couldn’t wait to try them; however, when I proceeded to make them, I discovered my avocados were too ripe and mushy! Clearly, this was a kitchen disaster, but thinking quickly, I improvised and created a fun, easy-to-make appetizer: Guacamole Bites with Hot Wasabi Mayo.

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup panko crumbs
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 3 tbsp. wasabi

Preparation:

Remove avocado from skin and remove pit. Smash avocados and stir until creamy and free of lumps. Mix in diced onions, lime juice and cilantro. Begin heating vegetable oil on the stove in a heavy pan. Using a spoon and your fingers, form avocado mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll the balls in panko crumbs and drop into hot oil until golden brown, remove and place on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Mix mayo and wasabi in a bowl. Serve guacamole bites with a side of the wasabi mayo.
