Serves 6 (serving size: about 6 pickles, about 2 Tbsp. Roundhouse-Kick Sauce)

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare the Roundhouse-Kick Sauce: Stir together mayonnaise, chili sauce, ketchup, vinegar, Sriracha, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, salt, mustard, and pepper in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Step 2

Prepare the Fried Pickles: Combine buttermilk and pepper in a shallow dish; add pickles, and stir to coat.

Step 3

Stir together cornmeal and flour in another shallow dish. Add several pickles at a time, and toss to coat evenly with cornmeal mixture. Place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper.

Step 4

Pour oil in a large cast-iron skillet to a depth of 1 inch. Heat oil to 365°F over medium-high. Add pickles, in batches, and fry until golden brown and crisp, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve with Roundhouse-Kick Sauce.
