Directions

In a medium bowl, whisk flour with baking soda, baking powder, and Mayan Sea Salt. Add egg white and beer and stir until batter is smooth. Refrigerate batter until ready fry. Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350 degrees. Slice avocados in half lengthwise and remove pits. Slice each half into about 4 or 5 slices. When oil is ready, remove batter from fridge, stirring to make sure it's well combined. Dip each avocado slice into the batter to coat then carefully add to hot oil. Fry, in batches, for 1 to 3 min. until golden brown. Sprinkle generously with seasoning salt of choice and serve.
