Has anyone ever made deep fried pickles with a tempura batter? I have done the traditional cornmeal but I am curious how difficult it is to have a wet batter coating with the pickles?Any tips and thoughts would be great.
The pickles must be thoroughly dry and at room temperature. Use a good towel to dry them, dip into the batter and drain off excess, deep fry. No problem.
Thanks, chefj. I always forget about the corn starch step..... Probably why the first one out of the fryer is usually not quite right and a reminder to go back and complete that step.
Dry with a kitchen towel or paper towel then dust with flour or corn starch first then dip into batter and fry.
This ... but I would roll the pickles in panko and then dip in tempura batter.
nice call- so tempura last then..
Thank you kindly!Any ideas on a creative tasty mayo-based dip for this?
Yum, I love fried pickles! Are they sweet or sour? That would determine a better sauce to dip in.
I think I am going to do a bit of both.. so unless I choose a dip that suits both, I might want to think up both.
Chipotle-based mayo dip? Microbrew I used to go to served em that way... delicious.
Yah i think that's the classic. Will probably do that. I may make a little sampler.. chipotle, dill, ranch, something sweet like honey mustard mayo
Fried dill pickles sprinkled with Cayenne pepper is a favorite at Uncle Bob's house....Especially as a snack before a fish fry!
