This recipe blends an Asian-inspired batter with fried dill pickles, a classic fish fry side in the lower South. Recipe is from Southern Living Magazine. The first time I ever had fried dill pickles was in Tennessee, while on vacation, and they were delicious. Note: Cooking time is 2.5 minutes per batch.
- Drain pickles, reserving 2 tablespoons pickle juice. Press pickles between layers of paper towels. Set aside.
- Pour oil to a depth of 3 inches into a dutch oven; heat to 370 degrees F.
- Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir in club soda and reserved pickle juice, stirring just until combined (batter will be lumpy).
- Dip pickles into batter, letting excess drip off. Fry pickles in batches, 2 1/2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on wire racks over paper towels, and serve immediately.
