Fried Dill Pickles were made famous by the former Hollywood Cafe, which was just south of Memphis in Hollywood, Mississippi. The restaurant was best known for its pickles and frog legs. Here is how they're made:
3 to 4 large pickles, whole
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup beer
1 tablespoon cayenne
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons garlic salt
3 dashes hot pepper sauce
Vegetable oil for frying
Cut dill pickles into slices of 1/4 inch thickness. Combine flour, beer, cayenne, paprika, pepper, salt, garlic salt and hot pepper sauce in a medium mixing bowl. Dip pickle slices into batter.
Heat oil to 375 degrees F in a large, deep saucepan. Fry pickles until they float to the surface, about 4 minutes.
