Fried Pickles!

Any of you Eaten at The Garden Restaurant at Temple Square? This is their Fried Pickle Recipe. Delicious and Easy!!
All of you that say you can't cook with out a recipe and can't do this. Well, let me tell you. YOU CAN! This recipe will not change flavor, texture, look, appeal, etc just because you don't know what to do. Folks it's just a fried Pickle. I promise you'll love it.

Pickle Spears
Juice from Spears
Pancake Batter
Old Bay spice
Baking Powder
Dill Weed Spice

Start out with a 1/2 cup of Pancake Batter
Then add 1/4 cup of Flour
Pinch of Old Bay spice or Less. You don't want your batter turning red. -Don't have any old bay? Leave it out. You'll never be able to tell. Or Just make your own. Emeril Lagasse has a great old bay recipe. Found on Food Network.
Pinch of Baking Powder
Sprinkle of Dill. You can add as much dill as you like.
Start with 1/2 of your pickle juice and mix it in to the dry ingredients.

Take a pickle. Cover it in Flour. Then cover it in Batter. Fry in Hot Oil. Remove from oil when slightly brown. Dip in Ranch or 1000 Island Dressing. Chomp. Chew. Swallow. Repeat

You want a thin batter. Slowly keep adding the pickle juice until it's just a touch thinner than a regular batter for something like pancakes. In between Pancakes and Crepes. It REALLY doesn't matter. If you run out of Juice just add some water. I make this at work in a HUGE BATCH Some days it's really thin, some days it's thick. Some days I add a ton of dill some days I just add a touch. You just have the play with it until it's the way that you like it.

Wait what's Old Bay? See I have the recipe and already feel like I can't make it, cause I don't know what that is. ;)

Adam and I made these fried pickles and they were great. We cooked them outside on his coleman stove and they were able to get cooked through quickly. Yum!
