The number one traditional side served at a fish fry is now keto!
Really anyone in the family can help out with the process of making these little guys. I also love how she uses basic ingredients that you may already have in your pantry or fridge.
If you’ve never had a hushpuppy before, they are typically a high-carb dumpling that is fried in oil with a crispy outside and a fluffy potato-like texture on the inside. Unlike traditional hushpuppies, this keto version ditches regular flour for almond flour which significantly lowers the carb-count.
Hip Recipe Tips:
- You will need a dutch oven or a large pot to fry the hushpuppies in so that they have plenty of room to fry evenly.
- Make sure your oil is HOT before dropping your hushpuppies in to fry. A candy thermometer really helps to gauge the temperature.
- We like our food a little spicy, so I decided to add chopped jalapenos to half of the batter, and they were so delicious. We definitely enjoyed that added kick!
Hushpuppies are the perfect side for a traditional southern fish fry. They are also the perfect little snack if you are just having a craving for high-carb foods. They definitely hit the spot!
