Fried Pickle Chips



  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
  • Pinch cayenne
  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ cups lager beer
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 8 large dill pickles, sliced ¼ inch thick


1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, coriander and cayenne. Mix in the egg followed by the beer to form a smooth batter.

2. In a 4-quart Dutch oven, heat 2 inches of vegetable oil to 375º and line a plate with paper towels. Working in batches, dip the pickle slices into the batter, then slowly drop into the oil. Cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pickle chips to the prepared plate to drain. Immediately season with kosher salt. Transfer to a platter and serve.
