fried pickles?

(1/3) > >>

I'm looking for a good easy to make fried pickle recipe. I was hoping someone would have one, since I hear they've been popular in the south for awhile. I'm just now seeing them once in a while at restaurants.

I have a couple:

Beer Battered Fried Pickles

2 (16-oz.) jars of your favorite dill pickle sandwich slices, drained
1 large egg
1 (12-oz.) can beer
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Vegetable oil
Ranch Dipping Sauce

1. Pat pickles dry with paper towels.
2. Whisk together egg and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl; add 1 1/2 cups flour, and whisk until smooth.
3. Pour oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches into a large heavy skillet or Dutch oven; heat over medium-high heat to 375.
4. Dip pickle slices into batter, allowing excess batter to drip off. Fry pickles, in batches, 3 to 4 minutes or until golden. Drain and pat dry on paper towels; serve immediately with Ranch Dipping Sauce.


Tempura Dill Pickles

1 (24-ounce) jar sliced kosher dill pickles
Vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup club soda, chilled

1. Drain pickles, reserving 2 tablespoons pickle juice. Press pickles between layers of paper towels. Set aside.
2. Pour oil to a depth of 3 inches into a Dutch oven; heat to 370.
3. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir in club soda and reserved 2 tablespoons pickle juice, stirring just until combined. (Batter will be lumpy.)
4. Dip pickles into batter, letting excess drip off.
5. Fry pickles, in batches, 2 1/2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on wire racks over paper towels, and serve immediately.

Thanks! Does it matter if the pickles are warm or cold?

Hmm, not sure if it matters. I've always had them at room temperature (opening a new jar from the pantry), so I know that works well.

Mmmmm...deep fried pickles. I'll be getting my fix at the State Fair on Tuesday.

I don't have a recipe that I use but I remember the ones at the fair have dill added into the batter and they are phenomenal!
