Ingredients

  • ½ cup buttermilk

  • salt and black pepper to taste

  • 1 (16 ounce) jar dill pickle slices

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ cups fine cornmeal

  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay™

  • ¼ teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  • 1 quart oil for frying

  • ½ teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  • 1 (12 ounce) jar buttermilk ranch dressing

Directions

  1. Cover a plate with parchment paper or wax paper. In a shallow dish, combine buttermilk, salt, and pepper. Place pickles in mixture and set aside.

  2. Pour the flour, cornmeal, seafood seasoning, and 1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning into a large, resealable plastic bag; shake to mix well. Add pickles a few at a time and tumble gently to coat evenly with the flour mixture. Remove and place on prepared plate.

  3. Heat oil to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C) in deep-fryer or heavy deep skillet.

  4. Fry pickles in several batches until golden brown and slightly crisp on the outside with a moist interior, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

  5. In a small bowl, combine buttermilk ranch dressing with 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning; blend. Serve as a dipping sauce for warm pickles.
