Hush Puppies with Sweet Chili Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1 tablespoon Sambal; Chili sauce
  • 2 cups Yellow Cornmeal
  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1 pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 large Onion; finely diced
  • 2 Eggs; separated
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 2 Cloves Garlic; minced
  • 2 tablespoons Bacon Fat; melted
  • Vegetable Oil; for frying
step-by-step directions
  • Preheat oil to 350 F.
  • Heat Honey over low in a non-stick pan. Add Chili Sauce and stir to combine. Keep Honey warm until ready to serve.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients until evenly distributed. Stir in Onion to coat.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients excluding the Egg Whites. Pour into the dry mix and stir to form batter, making sure not to over mix.
  • Whip the Egg Whites in a clean bowl until stiff peaks hold. Gently fold into the batter just until incorporated, some streaks may be visible.
  • Using spoons, fry rounded teaspoons of batter for 3-4 minutes, or until golden. Work in batches to avoid overcrowding pot.
  • Drain onto a paper towel-lined plate and immediately sprinkle with Salt.
  • Serve with a drizzle of warm Sweet Chili Sauce.
