I came to post this recipe, and found you had already done so. These are fabulous! I first had them served as an appetizer to a fried catfish dinner with coleslaw and I am seeing them served here in the south with fried shrimp. However you choose to serve them...they are great as a snack by themselves! The only suggestion I have is to use Peanut Oil to prevent the "gunky stuff" while frying.
