Crab Jalapeno Hushpuppies


Recipe: Crab Jalapeno Hushpuppies

Summary: I mean, who does not like golden grown, deep fried balls of delicious cornbread? When I was growing up we had them with fried fish and shrimp dinners and they were the item I ate most greedily. These days I make hushpuppies for all sorts of occasions and I have found they make an excellent appetizer, especially if I add a little seafood directly to the batter.
