Hush Puppies

Good ole fashioned hush puppies are to fried fish what peanut butter is to jelly. This is the perfect hush puppy recipe too because they taste like little morsels of fried cornbread. Sounds utterly delicious right? I whip up the batter for these in about 5 minutes flat, fry them up golden brown and serve them along side some fried catfish, tilapia, perch, flounder, whiting, shrimp or whatever else we may have in the house.
