Fried Pickles are a Sweet and Sour Snack

February 5, 2012

Fried pickles are an unexpected sweet and sour snack.  Small pickles and pickle slices are dredged in flour and panko and then fried until golden brown.  You might be wary of this fried concoction but the flavors will surprise; they can become addicting.  Dip fried pickles in sriracha mayo or a roasted garlic aioli.  Fried pickles are sure to be a hit.

Fried Pickles


11 sweet cucumber chip pickles, drained and dry
11 mini garlic dills, drained and dry
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon garlic seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 tablespoon adobo seasonings
2/3 cup panko bread crumbs
In a small shallow bowl mix the milk and egg together. In another small shallow bowl mix the flour, cayenne, adobo and garlic together, and in the last bowl add the Panko crumbs. One at a time dip the pickles into the egg mixture then into the flour. Shake off the excess flour and dip back into the egg then cover in the Panko crumbs. Lay the covered pickles in a single layer onto a baking sheet, when all pickles have been covered place the tray into the freezer for 1 hour (this will ensure the coating sticks to the pickle in the deep fryer). Heat a deep fryer to 375 degrees and cook a single layer of pickles at a time for 1 minute, place on paper towel to drain. Sprinkle with salt, they are good hot or cold.
