I am not a huge fan of fried foods so I don’t have a lot of experience making them. I do however love catfish (caught and cooked by others) and needed to bring something for a fish fry over the weekend. A few ideas crossed my mind but I settled on hush puppies and am so glad I came across Vicki’s recipe. These were wonderful and totally made me appear to be a frying pro!
For anyone who may be a little apprehensive… 1.) NOT dry – putting the onions (and a jalapeno and few heads of garlic) thru the food processor released moisture which added to the batter. Grating would have the same effect. 2.) Sugar quantity is to your liking – I only used ¼ cup and felt that was perfect for us 3.) Spice it up (or not) I added garlic and a jalapeno, garlic salt and Tonys seasoning. If I were making for just my family I would have added cayenne and a lot more jalapenos 4.) Go ahead, make the batter in advance – this worried me the most since the batter didn’t hit the fryer until 2 hours after making it. 5.) No worries at the fryer! Once they were browned on the outside the inside was perfectly cooked.
