What are your thoughts on deep fried pickles? Have you had them? If you haven’t, don’t be so quick to judge. They are awesome. Seriously! I first had deep fried pickles at Hooters. Ha. That got your attention, didn’t it?
A friend offered me this recipe and it has been a favorite ever since-
Dill Pickle slices (you can also use spears)
1 cup buttermilk (you can make your own with 1 cup milk and 1 Tbsp. vinegar)
1 cup corn meal (I used 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup corn meal)
1 Tbsp. seasoning salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan Cheese
vegetable oil for frying
Dip pickles into buttermilk and then into corn meal mixture.
Place on a place and set aside.
Heat oil to about 300 degrees. You want it hot enough so that a tiny bit of flour added to it sizzles pretty good. Otherwise it'll be too cool and your pickles will soak up the oil.
Cook pickles for about 2-3 minutes, turning about half way. If you're using spears, your cooking time will be increased.
Remove and place on a paper towel.
Serve warm with ranch dressing.
