Crunchy GEM® Avocado Wedges with Tomato & Sweetcorn Salsa

Ingredients

  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 tsp fine salt
  • 2 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 2 eggs
  • 125g cornflakes
  • 2 GEM® avocados

 

For the salsa:

  • 200g tin of sweetcorn, drained
  • 100g cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 20g fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime

Method

  1. Start by mixing together all the ingredients for the salsa, then season to taste.
  2. Mix the flour with the salt and Cajun seasoning in a shallow bowl. Crack the eggs into a second shallow bowl and beat them with a splash of water. Put the cornflakes into a small bag, seal and crush to crumbs, then tip into a third shallow bowl.
  3. Peel and stone the GEM® avocado and cut lengthways into wedges. Heat the grill to medium and lightly grease a baking tray.
  4. Dip each GEM® avocado wedge first in the flour, then the egg, shaking off any excess, then in the crumbs until well coated. Put on the baking tray.
  5. Grill for a minute or so until golden brown, then turn over and repeat. Serve immediately with the salsa. Also delicious with some soured cream on the side.
