Jalapeno Hushpuppies

Jalapeno Hushpuppies - These spicy little fried nuggets of cornmeal are the perfect companion to any fried fish!

Jalapeno Hushpuppies

 

Hushpuppies are a requirement with all of our fried fish or shrimp.  It’s a must!  These jalapeno hushpuppies are spicy, crispy, golden brown little nuggets of fried cornbread heaven.  No fish fry is complete without them. We recently had these with our Beer Battered Fish.  If you are going to be frying fish anyway throw in some of these bad boys.  I promise you won’t regret it.

Chop up some pickled jalapenos and just mix them in the batter. Scoop with a cookie dough scoop (or spoon), and fry until done.  The cookie dough scoop just helps keep them as round as possible. Sorry I didn’t get a photo of the frying method. I was a little busy…ok, I forgot.

Simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. It takes less than 5 minutes to mix the batter and only about 5 minutes of frying time. Fast and easy.

Author:
Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 12 to 15
Ingredients
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup diced onion
  • ¼ to ½ cup chopped jalapeno peppers, as desired
  • canola or vegetable oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Whisk together the eggs and buttermilk, in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, then add the onion and jalapenos and stir until incorporated and the batter is thick.
  2. In a heavy-bottomed pot (Dutch oven) or deep fryer, heat enough oil to come halfway up the sides of the pot, to 360 degrees F.
  3. Working in batches, drop the batter, 1 tablespoon (I use a cookie dough scoop) at a time, into the oil, being careful to not overcrowd the pot. Fry until deep golden on all sides, turning in the oil for even cooking, about 5 minutes. Transfer the hush puppies to a paper towel-lined dish and sprinkle with salt (if desired) while hot.
Notes
This recipe yields about 12 to 15 pieces, depending on the scoop size.

    Visiting from Inspire Me Monday at Create With Joy!

    Oooh, my husband is going to LOVE these! He’s a jalapeno kind of a guy. Of course, our oldest (19) likes to eat hot foods too. If I walk in the house and my eyes start to water, I know one or both of them is making something in the kitchen!

    Here’s my Inspire Me Monday!

    I love hushpuppies, and anything spicy, so this combo is perfect! And you’re right, if the grease is already hot, there’s no reason not to make hushpuppies. Thanks for sharing!

    These little bag boys look awesome. We don’t have a deep fat fryer, so I don’t think I’ll be making them any time soon, but I’m pretty sure I’d love them.

    Oh my gosh, I love hush puppies! But I haven’t had them forever. I don’t know how I forgot about them. I never dreamed of adding jalapenos into these little bready, fried pieces of Heaven. But I am pinning this recipe so that we can have these the next time we have fish and chips. I am so excited my stomach’s growling right now!
