Pickle-based recipes

This might be a bit of a stretch, considering this is the vegetable forum, but hear me out!

My wife loves pickles, and I'm planning a date night with her. I want to make a reasonably priced 5 course meal, all based on pickles... and I'm looking for entree type recipes.

Kind of an Iron Chef kind of a deal I guess, with a certain ingredient. But I don't want it to be overwhelmingly pickly.

For starters I'll probably do a deep fried pickle chip thing... but beyond that it's really hard to find recipes with pickles in it, that aren't PICKLING recipes.

Any help would be awesome! Thanks

V

Marinated artichoke hearts are in essence, pickled. I'm not sure if you're looking for vegetarian dishes, but I do an awesome chicken dish with marinated artichoke hearts.
Another dish that comes to mind is shrimp with capers, also in the "pickle" category.

Boil chicken in Broth till cooked, remove chicken and shred the meat. Add shredded chicken back to pot with broth. Add all other ingredients apart from the sour cream.

Here is my adaptation of a recipe I got on ths forum years ago. It's delicious over rice.

Chicken with Pickled Peppers

2-3 Ea Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
3-4 Tb Olive Oil

2 Ea Shallots, sliced
4 Cl Garlic, minced
5-6 Pickled Hot Cherry Peppers, sliced
C Kalamata Olives
C Juice from the Pepper Jar
C Dry White Wine
1+ C Chicken Broth
1 Tb Flour
TT
Salt and Pepper

Cut the chicken into large chunks and season with salt and pepper. Brown the chicken pieces in olive oil over high heat, remove to a plate.

Add the shallots and garlic to the pan and cook for about a minute.

Add the peppers and cook for 30 seconds.

Add the pickle juice and reduce by half.

Add the white wine and reduce by half.

Add the chicken broth, olives and chicken. Simmer until the liquid is reduced by about half.

Make a flour slurry and stir into the pan and bring to a boil for 2-3 minutes.

Check and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Note: You may add Italian sausage to the chicken or instead of the chicken.

Cuban sandwiches have pickles in them. How about pickled beef (sauerbraten)?

This recipe is absolutely delicious! I'm a pickle lover myself and I've made this more than once. It will make a nice date dinner to serve to a lady :)

You could also try BigosPolish Hunters Stew Recipe - Recipe for Traditional Polish Bigos or Hunter's Stew

I don't add the prunes or wine but I do add pimento. There are several Polish Dishes that contain some form of pickles. This dish is actually better when made the day before then cooked for an hour or 2 more the next day.

It does not contain pickles but it does however contain sauerkraut. I'm sure the member that posted this thread can figure that out for themselves. Most people that like dill pickles enjoy things like sauerkraut too and since it adds that sour/fermented note to a dish his fiance may very well like it.

Pork chops, pan fried and served with a brown sauce with large diced pickles and shallots. Works well together

Lucky you! I like a bit of all cuisines but German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Indian and Greek are at the top of my list. I'm always up for trying new things.
