Another version of gluten-free deep fried pickles - this time I made crunchy fried pickle spears. Yum!
Ingredients
  • 3 large (and I mean large) dill pickles, cut lengthwise into 4 spears each
  • ¾ cup gluten-free flour, divided
  • ½ cup water (plus more for thinning as needed)
  • ½ cup gluten-free vegan bread crumbs
  • ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Preheat oil in deep-fryer to about 375°F, according to manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Arrange three shallow dishes with edges in a row. Place ¼ cup of the brown rice flour in the first dish. Whisk the remaining ½ cup of brown rice flour with water in the second dish. Add more water by the tablespoon as needed to thin to a pancake-batter consistency. Mix gluten-free bread crumbs and garlic powder in the third dish.
  3. Roll the pickle spears in the brown rice flour until they're just lightly coated. Dust off any excess.
  4. Dip in the batter. Don't let too much drip off as it may come off in big dollops.
  5. Roll gently in seasoned bread crumbs to cover the batter completely.
  6. Place gently in the hot oil. Fry until just lightly browned - about 5-10 minutes depending on your deep fryer.
  7. Remove and let drain on to a paper towel lined plate to soak up any excess oil.
  8. Serve hot.
