I can’t wait for tonight! I’m making world-famous New Orleans cooking, just like I used to get at Ralph & Kacoo’s.
The main course is going to be deep-fried Japanese fish that looks an awful lot like catfish — something the locals consider inedible — and hush puppies. No, they’re not shoes, they’re balls of delicious corn meal, milk, egg and a bit of onion deep fried alongside the fish. They’re just a bit sweet, and 100% divine. about.com has a recipe close to what I’m making tonight, though I use yellow corn meal and regular milk. Oh, and regular corn meal — no need for this self-rising stuff. :) Actually, this one might be a closer recipe. Yay Justin Wilson!
And there’s no Zatarain’s Fish Fri here, so I’ll make do with regular batter and adding a bunch of zesty spices. Woo wee! :)
hush puppies are the best… mmmmmmm
