- On a plate mix flour and cajun seasonings together (can add other seasonings you want into this)
- In a shallow bowl pour the buttermilk inside (can add any hot sauce into this if you want heat)
- In last plate mix Panko breadcrumbs with salt and Italian seasoning. Then pour in olive oil and mix so it is damp.
- Like an assembly line, put pickle into flour, coat, then shake off excess. Then into buttermilk, and lastly into Panko coating it well on all sides. Allow excess to fall off. Put into air fryer basket.
