Honey mustard bbq sauce
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp bbq sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • dash of Tabasco
  • salt and pepper
Cajun beer battered fried pickles
  • 6 dill pickles, sliced into 1/4 inch thick slices
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 cup beer
  • oil for frying
  • chopped parsley for garnish
  • sea salt for sprinkling

Make the honey mustard bbq sauce. Whisk together 1/4 cup mayonnaise with 2 tbsp BBQ sauce, 1 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp dijon mustard, 1 tsp lemon juice, and a dash of Tabasco. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Slice the dill pickles into 1/4 inch thick slices. Pat dry the pickle slices with paper towels. Make the beer batter by mixing together 1/2 cup all-purpose flour with 2 tsp Cajun seasoning, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 3/4 cup beer.
Heat frying oil to 375 degrees F.
Dip the pickles in the beer batter and fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to remove excess oil. Repeat with the remaining pickle slices.
Garnish Cajun beer battered fried pickles with chopped parsley and sea salt if desired. Serve with honey mustard bbq sauce.
