To make the Food Network's Almost-Famous Fried Pickles, heat peanut oil 1-inch deep in a pot until a deep-fry thermometer reads 375 degrees Fahrenheit. At the same time, combine 1/2 cup flour, 1 3/4 teaspoons Cajun seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, then add in 1/2 cup water. Mix all the ingredients together until the batter is smooth. Lay 2 cups dill pickle slices on paper towels and pat dry.
Put half of the pickles in the batter and remove with a slotted spoon, letting the extra batter fall off. Add pickles to the oil one at a time, and fry for one to two minutes. Use the slotted spoon to remove the pickles from the oil, and drain on paper towels. Repeat the process with the other half of the pickle slices, making sure that the oil returns to 375 degrees Fahrenheit before adding the pickles. To make the dipping sauce to serve with the pickles, combine 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons ketchup, 1 tablespoon drained horseradish, and 1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, and mix until well blended.Learn more about Cooking
