This recipe was shared with me by my dear, now-deceased, mother-in-law. Fish fries are a popular tradition in Louisiana where she hailed from, especially in the fish camps around the many lakes and reservoirs there. In order to have enough hush puppies to feed the crowd of people attending the frequent community get-togethers, she would have to triple or even quadruple this most-requested dish because they were so good that people gobbled them up by the handfuls.
