Pickle Fries with Cajun Dijon Dip
Crunchy cornichons dipped in batter, fried until golden and served with a Cajun Dijon dipping sauce.
Pickle Fries Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup carbonated water
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 30 - 35 cornichons
- oil for frying
Cajun Dijon Dip
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt-free Cajun seasoning
- 1 teaspoon Maille Rich Country Dijon
Combine all the ingredients for the dip together in a bowl. Mix well, cover and refrigerate while you prepare the pickle fries.
Preheat 1 inch of oil in a skillet over medium heat to 350 degrees.
Pat dry the cornichons.
In a shallow bowl, whisk together water and egg until frothy. Slowly whisk in flour until a batter forms.
When the oil is hot, use tongs to dip the cornichons into the batter and then into the oil. Fry, in batches if necessary to avoid over crowding, until the cornichons are golden brown 2 - 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle lightly with salt, if desired but remember the pickles are already salted. Serve with dip.
Disclosure: I was given the cornichons and mustard to try but was not compensated in any other way. I chose to write about these products because I really love them!
