Fried Pickles with Salt and Vinegar Mayo

What ingredients do you need for fried pickles?

Pickles: I absolutely love bread and butter pickles, so that’s what we are using here. I love the sweet flavor paired with the crunch. However, you can use any you love and have on hand, like dill pickles as well.

Batter: We are making a wet batter made with all purpose flour as the base and loads of spices like cayenne pepper powder, paprika powder, chili powder, onion powder (garlic powder works too) and mustard powder. Then adding in sparkling water for the fluffiest and crispiest fried pickles.

For the salt and vinegar mayo: It’s SO simple. We are just mixing mayo, white vinegar and sherry vinegar (red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar work too!)

For frying: We are using a neutral oil, any will do! Such as vegetable oil, canola oil and/or peanut oil as well. We are not tossing our pickle chips in panko breadcrumbs, however you can definitely do that, too!

Instructions to make this fried pickles recipe

Make your mayo

In a bowl, mix your mayo, vinegars, salt and pepper. Set aside until ready to serve.

Make your batter

In a large bowl, add in your flour and seasonings of choice (we are using cayenne, paprika, chili, onion and mustard powder). Mix until combined. Add in your sparkling water into the flour mixture and whisk well so there are no clumps. Chill in the fridge for up to 30 minutes.

Dry your pickles

In the meantime, drain and dry your pickle rounds with paper towels in a single layer. 

Fry!

Heat a deep skillet or pot with oil. Take your dried pickles and toss them in your flour/seltzer batter, shake off any excess and fry until golden brown on all sides (about 5-7 minutes). Repeat in batches. Place on paper towels to dry out any oil.

Serve

Serve on a platter with your dipping sauce of salt and vinegar mayo.
