Cajun beer battered fried pickles

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¾ cup beer

  • Make the honey mustard bbq sauce. Whisk together ¼ cup mayonnaise with 2 tablespoon BBQ sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and a dash of Tabasco. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Slice the dill pickles into ¼ inch thick slices. Pat dry the pickle slices with paper towels. Make the beer batter by mixing together ½ cup all-purpose flour with 2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, ¼ teaspoon black pepper, and ¾ cup beer.
