deep fried pickles

Pickle spears with large grain mustard aioli. I could not resist the fried food challenge.

    your pictures are very beautiful, but this one makes me a bit sick... do you live in the south? because deep fried pickles sounds like it would be a southern thing... are fried snickers bars from the south? those disgust me way more than the pickles...

    Deep fried Snickers and Mars Bars originated overseas in either Scotland or Ireland. There was a FoodTV Network special on deep fried foods and the Snickers and Mars Bars were featured on it.

    I think the deep fried pickles would be a neat item to check out, but that's just me... I do agree about the Snickers and Mars Bars being disgusting, though.

    don't mock the deep fried candy till you try it!! lol. I agree that certainly a whole candy bar of the stuff is not nice to the tummy, but just a bite of deep fried candy goodness is definitely worth giving a chance.

    It basically tastes like melted candy bar wrapped in a big pancake. lol.

    BTW, they don't just stop at candy bars, you can also get twinkies, moon pie, and oreos. Yum yum.

    Fried Pickles have been my obsession since I had them in Texas this winter!!!! You don't know what this picture is doing to me! argh! Threadgill's in Austin makes them just like your picture. www.threadgills.com/menu.cfm

    I got these at a German restaurant in Seattle after a review in one of the weeklies talked about them. They were quite good if you like disgusting fried foods, which I do. (And in general I'd rather have a pickle than a flourless chocolate cake.) I think they would be most appreciated when one is both staggeringly drunk and very hungry, which I wasn't.

    do not turn your nose up at these pickles! i first had them off jackson square in new orleans, except they were chip style pickles, and they had a thousand island based dip with them. i also became obsessed. i came home, copied the recipe, and now they are a staple at our annual mardi gras shrimp boil. delicious!!

    When I was a kid Sonic drive-in restaurants in some areas in Texas had the chip style fried pickles. We got them at a Sonic near Waco when we'd visit my grandparents. YUM!!! Didn't know they had them at Threadgill's. I bet they are so good there!! I'm in Seattle now. I'd love to know the German restaurant you got them at.

    The place is called The People's Pub, it's in old Ballard next to La Carta de Oaxaca. It's a dark, sort of smokey, but strangely comfortable pub, Here is the story in The Strager that talks about it.

    Love fried pickles -- very yummy!
  • Joann Edmonds 10y

    I went and ate them! Yu-uu-mmy! Even my finicky husband, who fully expected not to like them, loved them! But I have to admit, I was salted out by the time two of us finished one order. The aioli sauce itself is quite salty. Thanks for the tip-off on the place!

    are they dill pickles or those sweet & sour type gherkins? i've never heard of such a thing as deep fried pickles before. i'd try them though because i'm all about fried food (as long as it doesn't include meat.)
  • megan 10y

    Um, I think they were dill. It was a while ago.

    Mmm, deep fried pickles. For some reason they do taste better if they're cut into chips. It's best to use a beer batter with them. They're a very southern dish. They're delicious.
  • Muddy LaBoue 7y

    I'm having difficulty imagining...
