Secret Recipe Club July: Fried Pickles

20 Jul

This summer is flying by!  It’s already Secret Recipe Club time for July :O  I was assigned Melissa’s blog site Melissa’s Cuisine!  So many recipes I really wanted to try (Texas Cavier YUM… Strawberry Mango Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips NEED… and of course some non-vegan recipes that I must try soon: a sweet Gingerbread Spread and Homemade Cheez-It Crackers!)  Thanks for your amazing hard work in the kitchen Melissa :)


Pan Fried Pickles

Yields enough batter for about 30 pickle slices (5-6 small, whole pickles)


1 flax egg (1 tablespoon flaxmeal mixed with 3 tablespoons water)

4 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. soy sauce

1/2 tsp. all-purpose seasoning

1/2-1 tsp. dried dill

1/4 – 1/2 tsp sea salt

Fresh ground black pepper

4 Tbsp. crushed cracker crumbs (or bread crumbs; about 10 medium crackers)

30 pickle slices, more or less

Enough oil to fill a shallow frying pan by about 1 1/2 inches




Heat your oil in the frying pan over medium heat.

In a wide, shallow bowl combine the flax egg, flour, soy sauce, all-purpose seasoning, dried dill, sea salt and fresh ground black pepper until a paste forms.  Spread the cracker crumbs out on a plate, or another wide, shallow bowl.

Submerge 5-6 of the pickle slices in to the “egg” mixture then dredge with cracker crumbs.  Gently and carefully place the pickle slices into the hot oil.  After a second, gently move the slices with a fork to make sure the crust is not stuck to the bottom of the pan.  Fry for about a minute, then flip and cook a minute more, or until golden brown.  Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to cool slightly.








Enjoy the fried pickles on their own or alongside a nice dipping sauce.  I made a quick sriracha mayo and it was amazing :D

    Glad you could make fried pickles for this SRC since you’ll never find a vegan version at a restaurant. Great post!
