1. Pimento Cheese Hushpuppies
The hot, humid Louisiana air is heavy with mosquitoes, fireflies and the scent of fried fish. Newspaper shrouded picnic tables are piled high with platters of golden, crispy fish fillets and pale green peppery coleslaw, but peeking behind the Tabasco and rémoulade sauce rests the crowning joy of the fish fry, hushpuppies. Hushpuppies are my favorite part of any backyard fish fry or seafood joint.
2. Original Hushpuppies
I was pretty young, maybe early elementary school age, and I was firmly planted in my I-hate-fish stance. I was not budging, either. I have no idea what my mom ordered for me to eat that day, but I remember not eating anything fish-related, rather I stuffed my face full of these fried cornbread things called “hushpuppies”. Cue the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp… I was in love.
