Ingredients

Directions

Pour about 1 1/4 inches of peanut oil into a deep-fryer or Dutch oven; heat over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees F. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.

Combine the cornmeal, flour, onion, jalapenos, corn and eggs in a mixing bowl; stir until blended. Let stand 5 minutes.

Working in batches, drop the batter by teaspoonfuls into the hot oil. Don't overcrowd the pot; leave room for the hushpuppies to be turned. Cook until golden brown, turning, about 3 minutes.

Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while frying the remaining batter. Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and transfer to a serving dish. Serve with hot sauce.

If you can't find self-rising cornmeal, use 1 1/4 cups plus 2 1/2 tablespoons regular cornmeal, 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt.
