    Pokey in San Antonio, TX's Note:

    My sister-in-law lives in northern Louisiana, near Haughton. I go hunting with her husband every year. While there, they will always do up a mess of fish (pearch, brim, catfish, what ever is on hand). This is their sure-fire recipe for one heck of a fish fry.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    For the Fish

    • 6 lbs fresh water fish fillets
    • 3 tablespoons Tabasco sauce
    • 3 tablespoons Tony Chachere's Seasoning
    • 2 (10 ounce) packages cornmeal (Louisiana Fish Fry)

    For the Hush Puppies

    • 3 cups crackers (crumbled)
    • 5 green onions (chopped)
    • 1 egg
    • 1 (15 ounce) can creamed corn
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

    For the Corn

    • 1 cup cajun mustard
    • 6 ears fresh corn (cut into thirds)
    • 1 (10 ounce) package cornmeal (Louisiana Fish Fry)


    1. 1
      For the fish: Smear a light coating of Tabasco over the filets. Season with Tony's, then coat with Louisiana Fish Fry (or other seasoned corn meal), and place in freezer until ready to fry up. Note: You don't want the fish frozen, but very cold.
    2. 2
      Deep fry in hot oil. My brother in law cooks the fish out on the deck, using a liquid propane burner and a cast iron Dutch oven. He drops an unlit kitchen match in the oil. When it ignites, the oil is ready. That's around 325-350 degrees if you want to use a thermometer. Drop a few pieces of fish in at a time. Remove when golden brown and drop into a brown paper bag to drain and keep warm until all the fish is done.
    3. 3
      For the Hush Puppies: Crumble 1 1/2 sleeves of crackers by placing them in a zip lock bag and rolling with a rolling pin. Combine with remaining ingredients. Using two spoons, form into oval (foot ball shaped) balls.
    4. 4
      Drop into hot oil and cook until golden brown. Turning occasionally.
    5. 5
      For the Corn: Lightly coat each piece with the mustard. Coat with the fish fry, and deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.

      I only made the Hush Puppies and they were very good as well as easy. Will be making them again. Thanks for posting, Pokey.
