Growing up, our Friday night tradition was to head to our local fish house and eat fried fish along with fried pickles. I still crave these often, so I decided to come up with my own clean version. These Air Fryer Fried Pickles dipped in my Boom Boom Fry Sauce will make you forget all about the unhealthy version. If you’re currently looking for a fun appetizer, look no further.
These pickles are crispy and the perfect appetizer for any social gathering or summertime BBQ. The best news about these crispy little pickles is they are Whole30, Keto and Paleo along with being dairy and grain free. Not only does this serve as an amazing appetizer, but sometimes I will make them for my 4-year-old and serve with a sandwich. It’s a great alternative for chips. If you are needing the “crunch,” but don’t want all the funky ingredients or calories, this is the perfect alternative.
The almond flour mixture is filled with seasoning that really bring the flavor of the pickles to life. It’s impossible to eat a fried pickle without sauce. Wouldn’t you agree? That’s why dipping them in the Boom Boom Fry sauce make these pickles complete. The dipping sauce is filled with a little bit of everything and is absolutely divine. It tastes like In and Out Burger’s fry sauce, but much cleaner.
It’s good to know that it’s possible to create comfort recipes in a healthy and satisfying way. It takes a little extra research and effort regarding ingredients, but it’s totally worth the extra work. This is a fun recipe that is sure to please anyone at the table and is a great spin on the classic.
On another note, My Air Fryer is easily becoming one of my favorite new kitchen gadgets. It makes cooking so quick and clean-up a piece of cake. I cook anything from a steak to chicken strips. I will even use it to reheat leftovers. It really does make cooking so convenient and easy.
What’s the main key to getting crispy fried pickles in the airy fryer?
The key to getting a nice crisp on the pickles is,
- Spray the breaded pickles with olive oil cooking spray.
- Make sure there is room between each pickle. (This is crucial for getting a good crisp)
- Shaking the basket half way to make sure they are cooking evenly.
