How to make it

  • Begin heating the shortening or oil in a deep-fryer or a cast-iron skillet over medium heat.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, coriander, chili powder, and cayenne.
  • Stir in the grated onion. (can add the garlic here)
  • Stir in buttermilk and eggs until combined.
  • Heat the oil until it registers 375°F on a deep-fat thermometer.
  • Dip oysters into the batter and carefully drop them into the fat (in batches if necessary).
  • Fry on one side until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and fry the other side until completely golden.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked oyster hushpuppies to several layers of paper towels to drain.
  • Serve immediately.
