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.

Back in the 60s, I came to Sea Captain‘s with my family often. When we vacationed in Myrtle Beach, one night was always reserved for dinner at The Sea Captains. Besides the fried chicken (I do not eat sea food 🙁), my favorites were the peppermint pie with chocolate cookie crust and the grasshopper pie. I would love to have these recipes if possible. Many great memories at your restaurant! Thank you and Merry Christmas!

When we lived in Myrtle Beach we ate at The Sea Captain's House often ... and always enjoyed it immensely. We miss your Sea Crab Soup. We found this recipe on the Internet ... and we have a question: In the photograph of the soup it shows some green leaves and also what looks like a few drops of something orange/brown in color sprinkled into the soup just before serving ... what are those 2 items? The next time we are in the Myrtle Beach area ... we will visit the Sea Captain's House again ... probably more than once.
