It’s the week of the Super Bowl and we are dedicated to brining you Super Bowl inspired recipes! We’ll be bringing you some old recipes and a ton of new recipes to make your Super Bowl parties super incredible and filled with tasty food.
Our first recipe is one of the first recipes we ever posted and our first experience with fried food. We thought frying food was really intimidating but once you do it one or two times, it’s really is not that scary or hard. But we do recommending having a thermometer to know the temperature of your oil. It really truly helps. And just remember, every time you put something in the oil the oil temperature will drop. So, in between batches wait for your oil to reheat.
Fried pickles are the perfect way to start off your super bowl party. Who doesn’t love pickles? They’re tangy, they’re crunchy, they’re salty, and fried pickles are the perfect finger food. These are a must at all of our get togethers. So get on the pickle train, because it’s leaving for flavor town…wow that was incredibly awkward to write, I’m embarrassed. Click below for our scrumptious fried pickle recipe and save me from myself.
- 1 jar of Clausen Pickles, whole
- 1 cup Beer
- 3 cups flour (1-2 for batter, 1 for dredging)
- Vegetable Oil
- 1 cup of cornmeal
- 1 teaspoon cayenne
- 1 tablespoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon season salt
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
Step 1: Cut pickles into 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thick coins. (We initially used pre-cut pickle chips, but they weren’t pickle-y enough for us so we just had to cut ourselves some beautiful pickle “steaks”). Place the pickle steaks on a paper towel and then another paper towel on top.
Step 2: In a bowl, mix together one to two cups of flour and one bottle of beer of your choice. Whisk until combined. It should resemble a thin pancake batter. If the batter says it needs more beer, you should listen, it wants to make love to you, like you want it to.
Step 3: Add in the cayenne, garlic salt, season salt, onion powder and some pepper (“It don’t matter if it’s black or white”).
Step 4: Heat oil to 375°F.
Step 5: In a smaller bowl, mix one cup of flour and one cup of cornmeal with a few dashes of season salt.
Step 6: Once the oil is up to heat, take the pickle dredge it in some the flour/cornmeal mixture, then dip into the batter, then gently put it in to the oil and allow it to fry until it’s golden brown on one side then flip. Just make sure both sides get evenly golden brown.
Step 7: Take the beautifully fried pickle steaks out of their hot tub and place them on a plate with a paper towel, salt them immediately! Give them a few minutes to cool down and ENJOY!
Can be served with Sriracha or a Chipotle Mayo (or whatever floats your boat).
