If you’re not familiar with cornichons the best way to describe them is like little baby pickles but with more of a bite. The Maille cornichons for instance are marinated in a mixture of vinegar and other spices like tarragon, cloves, mustard seeds and onions. And they work perfectly for these pickle fries.
I have made fried pickles before, but these are a bit different. Instead of a bread crumb coating, these pickles are dipped in a quick thin batter made simply with egg, carbonated water and flour. It is just light enough to really let the flavor of the cornichons shine.
I really enjoyed these friends. They are really, really good. Crispy, crunchy, fried perfection.
And the Cajun Dijon Dip? Well that is just creamy Dijon deliciousness with a little kick.
