    This was a nice treat. I made them last night and the breading was just right. Only thing I might change the type of pickles for next time..I like tart but mine were a bit too tart. Thanks!

    I love these and there is one place that sells them this way. Everywhere else sells spears which are not as good. I can't wait to make these. Do you have a recipe for the dipping sauce that they serve with these in TN(the only other place I've ever eaten them besides ohio which they use this too)

    Absolutely love these, my daddy craves them. I just can't figure out how to take them to the Nursing facility and not have mushy pickles and get in trouble with the wonderful nurses who care for him.....hmmm, share, maybe?

    It's step one. Instead of a milk wash, you use seasoned ice water. It's a Louisiana thing. It was often inconvenient for fishermen to use milk and eggs to batter seafood and other fried foods. It produces a light coating. You could use a milk and/or egg wash, but the finished product would have a thicker coating.

    I first had Fried Pickles in Texas when my family traveled across country. I loved them! Thank you so much for the recipe. Could you please explain "Icewater marinade"?

    These are SO GOOD !!!! I went to a restaurant recently (I live in NC) that had them as spears but they weren't as good as having them as chips in Louisiana at a Cock of the Walk restaurant! My mom don't even LIKE pickles but she loves these.

    YEA! Since they seem to be impossible to find here in the north (though there is a place here that sells fried spears - not the same), I might just have to make my own. Thanks for the recipe! I'm smakin my lips just thinking about them :)
