      >>I am looking for a recipe for fried dill pickles. Like they serve at
      Applebee’s and other restaurants<<

      Sorry I can’t be of more help on this one, but I’ve never had fried pickles. Here are a couple different recipes..

      one for dill spears, whole dills and bread and butter pickles (which are sweeter).

      Recipe Courtesy of Emeril Lagasse

      12 dill pickle spears
      Essence, recipe follows
      3 cups flour
      2 egg yolks
      3/4 to 1 cup beer
      Pinch of baking powder
      Salt and pepper
      Oil for frying

      Preheat the fryer. Season the pickles with Essence. Season 1 cup of flour with Essence.

      In a mixing bowl, whisk the yolks and 3/4 cup of the beer. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Whisk in enough flour to form a batter.

      If the batter is too thick add the remaining beer to thin the batter. Dredge the spears in the seasoned flour. Dip the spears in the batter, letting the excess drip off and coating the spears completely.

      Gently lay the spears in the hot oil and fry until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the spears from the oil and drain on a paper-lined plate. Season the spears with Essence.

      Serve the spears with ketchup
