Expert Tips

If you can not find panko bread crumbs, you can substitute regular bread crumbs.

Use a candy thermometer to monitor the oil temperature.

To easily cut an avocado, cut in half vertically and carefully remove the pit with a sharp knife. With a serving spoon, scoop out the avocado flesh in one piece.
