Perfect Crunchy Deep Fried Pickles

Anthony Nicometi Jr


It's taken me WAY too long to replicate a good crispy, crunchy fried pickle recipe! Most batters I try usually come out soggy and limp. But with the incorporation of panko. It makes this super crunchy! And stay that way too! I prefer to dip mine in either Ranch, or some french onion dip. Like Bison! So if you like a super crunch with your deep fried pickles...this is the recipe for you!

Deep Fry


pickles (sliced or whole cut into slices of desired thickness)
oil for frying


1 c
all-purpose flour
1 c
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 Tbsp
smoked paprika
1 tsp
black pepper
2 small dash(es)
hot sauce (nothing too over bearing!)
1 Tbsp
dill pickle juice


1Mix together all the ingredients for the 'Batter' and allow to sit aside for 5 mins.
2Cut your pickles into thin or thick slices. (Thinner does work better. But not paper thin.) Then dry them with some paper towel to remove the excess moisture.

Place a few in the batter, then toss in the panko, and toss until fully coated. Repeat until all the pickles are cut.
3Place into a deep fryer, or pot of oil at 375 until a golden brown color is formed. Salt lightly immediately after they come out and enjoy dipping in some Ranch, or my favorite...French Onion Dip! :)
