Today I was at a county fair & we ordered fried pickles.
That is one of my youngest child's favorites things to order when we go out to dinner.
He's like a territorial dog and guards them while staring you down if you take one.
We have only made these twice at home but they are oh so good!
1/2 cup of buttermilk
salt to taste
1 16 oz. jar of sliced pickle chips
1/2 cup of flour
1 1/2 cups of cornmeal
2 tsp. of Cajun seasoning, I like to use Tony's Creole Seasoning
Oil for frying
How to make them:
Have a plate with a paper towel ready for the pickles to drain off the oil ready.
Heat oil in a deep fryer or a deep skillet
Mix in a bowl buttermilk, salt, 1 tsp. of Cajun seasoning
In another bowl mix flour, cornmeal & the other tsp. of the Cajun seasoning
Dip pickles one by one in wet mixture then dry mixture
Then place in frying pan
Fry until golden brown
Remove with tongs or scooper place onto plate with paper towel
We use ranch dressing for dipping.
