Shrimp & Grits Hushpuppies Ingredients:
- Four cups of water
- Two cups heavy cream
- Three cup grits
- One-half pound butter
- One tbl. salt
- One tbl. white pepper
- One chipotle purée
- One-half pound uncooked shrimp, peeled, veined and chopped
- One and one-half pound of Velveeta
- One tbl. green onion, chopped
- One and one-half cup whole corn
- One cup red bell pepper, diced
- One tbl. parsley, chopped
- Puckett’s Boat House pepper sauce (optional)
- One cup of flour
- Four large eggs, beaten
- Two cups of yellow cornmeal
Shrimp & Grits Hushpuppies Directions:
Combine water, heavy cream, chipotle purée, salt, and white pepper in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Stir in grits and let simmer for 8 minutes. Slowly stir in the cheese and raw shrimp. Once the shrimp turns pink, add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet to cool.
Once mixture is cooled, prepare to fry: using a small spoon or scoop, roll the mixture into small hushpuppy-size balls. Dip the balls into the flour, the egg wash and then the yellow cornmeal.
At this time, you can place them into a 365-degree fryer or skillet, with oil. The hushpuppies will fry for about two minutes and thirty seconds, or until golden brown.
If you like a little kick to your dishes, sprinkle PBH Pepper Sauce on the puppies. To purchase, go to www.puckettsboathouse.com.
