makes about 2 dozen

The Basic Fundamentals

Approximately 1 cup of peeled & deveined chopped shrimp is needed for the recipe. You will have about 6-oz of shrimp remaining to use for something else.

1/2 lb {31/35-count} wild American shrimp
1 1/2 cups plain yellow corn meal
3/4 cup self-rising flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp Creole seasoning
1/3 cup diced sweet onion
1/3 cup minced scallions
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp beer
Vegetable oil
Game Day Remoulade

Peel & devein the shrimp. Run under cool water & gently blot dry with paper towels. Cut each shrimp into 4 to 5 pieces. Set aside. Whisk together the cornmeal, the flour, the baking powder & the Creole seasoning in a large bowl. Fold in the onions, the scallions & the shrimp, coating well with the cornmeal mixture. Combine the egg & the beer. Add to the cornmeal mixture, blending well. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Pour the oil to a depth of 1 1/2-inches in a Dutch oven & heat to 360 degrees. Drop the cornmeal batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into the hot oil. Fry 3 to 4 minutes, in batches, or until golden brown & the shrimp is cooked through. Drain on a wire rack over paper towels. Serve warm with Game Day Remoulade.

The Extra Point

The hushpuppies would be delicious filled with crawfish tails or small pieces of catfish in place of the shrimp.

Many restaurants serve hushpuppies as a lagniappe but they can certainly be the main attraction when a host of game day favorites are on the menu.

Liquid & leavening are key. You want a mixture that’s loose enough for a moist interior but firm enough to hold shape when scooped & dropped into the hot oil. Heat the oil over Medium-High & once you hit the target oil temperature, maintain it by 10 degrees. A range of 350 to 360 is ideal. If the oil is hot enough, the hushpuppies will float. Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pot for the most accurate results. Turn the hushpuppies a few times as they cook for an even color. A slotted spoon works well for retrieving the hushpuppies from the oil. Allow the oil to return to 360 degrees before adding another batch to fry.
