Sea Captain’s House Recipes – Hushpuppies

The season of parties, relaxing, and getting together with friends and family is here. Spring and Summer are all about great food and great times. If you’re hosting a party or dinner, or just want to feed your friends something yummy, we have a recipe just for you! 

Hushpuppies are a Southern favorite, and are a hit at any meal. Give our broken-down version of our classic hushpuppy recipe a try. We bet they won’t last long.

Sea Captain’s House Hushpuppies

1 Cups Chicken Stock

¾ Cup of Dehydrated Onions

2 Eggs, beaten

½ Cup Buttermilk

¼ Cup Milk

¼ Cup Salad Oil

½ Tablespoon Baking Powder

½ Pound Self-Rising Cornmeal Mix

3 ¼ Cups All Purpose Flour

¾ Cup Sugar

3 Cups Oil

In mixing bowl, add eggs, milk, buttermilk, chicken stock, dehydrated onions, and salad oil. Whisk until evenly mixed.  In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, cornmeal, flour, and sugar. Mix it all up.  Slowly fold the dry ingredients in with the wet mixture until evenly incorporated throughout. Be careful not over-mix. Roll dough into desired size round balls.

In medium pan add remaining oil and heat on medium – medium high heat. Dropped each dough ball into the pan and begin to fry. The dough will immediately crisp and turn a golden brown. Do not allow to darken too much as they will burn easily. Remove from oil.

    My husband and I ate dinner with you about a month ago and the “special” appetizer was Shrimp and Crab Cheesecake. Oh, my! It was wonderful!! Best new appetizer we had had in a long time. We both hope that the cheesecake will become a regular on the menu. Also, I lost my favorite glasses there and you sent them to me! Many thanks! We love Sea Captain’s and have been customers there for at least 50 years. It’s worth the drive from anywhere to eat with you!

    Love your hush puppies, but as a Yankee, I don’t know how to cook them. Are they baked, at what temp and how long. Are they fried, in what type oil and temp and how do you know when done? In deep fryer? I appreciate the help. These were always a favorite part of our meal at the Sea Captains. Thank you,

    We ate there last Monday evening. BeBe was our waitress and she had an excellent trainee helping her. The service was outstanding! The food was delicious, as always! We commented that we thought the hushpuppies were the best ever! Thanks for the recipe!

    Super good, but how do you form them and are they fried and at what temp?
