These are my family's favorite. We make these every time we have a fish fry. Wonderful and spicy.

My husband loves to fry fish and is very good at it, but his hush puppies have always been just so-so. I made up the batter for these and he fried them. Oh WOW!! Very spicy; crispy on the outside; soft and tender on the inside. The spices and peppers are what make this a standout. Thanks Nurse Di.
