1Heat enough oil in a large heavy bottom skillet on high heat.
2In a medium bowl, mix together cornmeal and salt. Stir in enough boiling hot water that the cornmeal mixture comes together enough to spoon (not too thick and not too thin.
3When your oil is hot but,not smoking,you can either spoon your mix in the oil or shape each piece.Fry in oil about 5 minutes depending on how think the cakes only flip once.you want them to be golden and crispy.They absorb alot of oil so be sure to drain on paper towels.
These little gems are good served with beans.I make them when I have beans and fried chicken.
