These hush puppies are deliciously savory, fried balls of cornmeal based batter. They're finished with a spicy honey sauce for the perfect sweet, spicy, salty bite!
- 1 cup cornmeal
- ½ cup all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 egg
- ⅔ cup buttermilk
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
spicy honey drizzle
- ⅔ cup honey
- 2 tablespoons fresh chili sauce such as Sambal
- sea salt to taste
Pour oil in a large pot and begin preheating on medium-high heat.
Place all ingredients for the hush puppies into a large bowl and whisk together to create a thick batter.
Once the oil has reached 350 degrees F fry large (2 tablespoon) spoonfuls of batter for about 5 minutes, flipping every 2 to 3 minutes. This will take several batches.
Drain on paper towels and season with salt.
In a small bowl combine the honey and chili sauce and stir together.
Serve the hush puppies warm with a drizzle of the spicy honey sauce.
