Jalapeno Crab Hushpuppies are crunchy little bites that combine the classic flavors of crab and cornmeal with a fiery kick from jalapeño peppers. These are perfect for a crawfish boil, a holiday spread of Southern appetizers, or a seafood night at home.
You will love these.
Sinful, deep fried little things.
They remind me of my childhood days – eating Captain D’s addictive hushpuppies and batter fried fish with tons lemon juice and tarter sauce.
And let’s not forget the malt vinegar. That stuff is like pure crack.
I haven’t had that in years. I think maybe my arteries plead with me anytime I get a craving for it.
But, as sinful as these are, they have crab meat in them – Good for you, right? Oh, aaannnddd jalapenos – technically a vegetable.
See what I do for you; it’s your protein, grain and a veggie serving all wrapped into one little bite.
These are the bomb – they have a tiny bite from the jalapeno, seafoody-ness from the crab and a hint of sharpness from the Parmesan.
I dip them in traditional tarter sauce.
I could drink that stuff.
These would be fantastic with some grilled fish and and a big, fat Greek salad with lots of feta cheese.
Please excuse my retarded looking, manicure-less hand. I wanted you to see a nice close up.
God, I need a tan.
And a manicure. Did I already mention that?
