If you’ve had the Costco Dill Pickle Salad then you have had a glimpse into how good this sandwich is. It’s somewhat the inspiration behind this meal. We love dill, so we were bound to find a way to make it stand out. It adds such a unique fresh taste and definitely reminds us of summer. We love light meals that are full of flavour and leave you wanting more. This is exactly what this sandwich does. Even though the shrimp is fried, its only cooked for 1-2 minutes so that it stays fresh with just enough crunch to make an impact. It’s lightly dunked into a egg wash mixed with some dill pickle juice and coated in a dry dill infused flour breading.
TIPS FOR FRYING
We always use a vegetable oil base as our frying liquid. We find Canola to be not only affordable, but light and not greasy. This leaves us with a lighter golden crust and not a thick layer or batter around our fried food. For food that only require a quick fry it’s best to heat the oil to 375 degrees F instead of 350 degrees. This is because we need the higher heat to get that crispy golden colour without over cooking what’s inside. Oil should never be below 350 degrees as this will result in soggy and greasy foods. Be sure not to overcrowd and use a thermometer to check the temperature.
