Fried Dill Pickles

This recipe is from the Neelys of Food Network :) My friend Cassie is the person who should get all the credit towards me finding this recipe - she started talking about fried pickles and I was like WHAT? I HAVE TO HAVE THOSE. Only took me forever to actually make the recipe, but I digress...

What you need:
  • Peanut oil, for frying (I used canola because my DS may have a peanut allergy)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt, plus some
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. finely chopped dill
  • 1 jar whole dill pickles, cut into spears

Preheat deep fryer (or pot with oil) to 375. Combine cornmeal, flour, paprika, salt, pepper and dill in a casserole dish or shallow bowl.

Beat together milk, egg, cayenne and a splash of pickle juice in another casserole dish or shallow bowl.

Thoroughly dry pickles with paper towels.

Dredge first through wet ingredients.

Then dredge in dry ingredients.

Gently place in deep fryer and fry until golden brown, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

Remove to a paper towel lined sheet tray and immediately season with salt.
