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.

I've never been a hushpuppy fan but these were really great. A nice spicy kick that my 2 year old liked, also. I was worried they might be greasy but they turned out great and we even reheated them the next day in the oven and they stood up just fine. Next time, I will divide the recipe in half, it made an awful lot, even for the 6 of us. Next time I'lI read the servings better.

Although the flavour was great, the whole family found them VERY dry...I'll have to keep looking for our favourite hush puppy recipe
