Fresh Mahi (Dolphin) Fillet
1 Tbsp Maryland Crab Seasoning (optional)
Package of dry Hush Puppy mix
Heat your favorite vegetable oil in a deep fryer.
If you don't have a deep fryer a deep sauce pan works OK.
Trim darker meat from the Mahi filet.
You can substitute other white flaky fish such as catfish if the Mahi is unavailable.
Prepare hush puppy mix as directed on the package then add 1/2 cup additional water.
You want the mix to be just a little thicker than pancake batter.
Cut the fish into 1/2" to 3/4" cubes.
Sprinkle lightly with crab seasoning such as Old Bay if desired.
Stick each cube with a toothpick.
Dip into hush puppy mix then drop into the hot oil toothpick and all.
Fry for 3 minutes or until dark brown.
Drain on a paper towel and serve immediatly.
The kids absolutely love these. (grownups too) My two kids can eat them faster than I can make them. Make only enough to eat within an hour or two, they lose the crispy outer shell after that.
