Ingredients
SERVINGS:
Vegetable oil
1 cup non-GMO cornmeal (such as Bob’s Red Mill Blue Cornmeal)
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup chopped smoked chicken
¼ cup red onion, peeled and finely chopped
¼ cup scallion, finely chopped
1 large egg, lightly beaten
¼ cup beer
¼ cup coconut cream

Instructions

Stir together cornmeal and next 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Add the egg, beer, and coconut cream and stir just until moistened. Let stand 10 minutes.  Working in batches, gently roll the hush puppy dough into golf ball-sized balls then dab with paper towels on all sides to dry the surface a bit.  

Cook the Hush Puppies:  Pour oil to a depth of 3 inches into a Dutch oven or deep fryer and bring to 375°. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200°. Carefully lower a few hush puppies into hot oil using a slotted spoon. Take care not to crowd the pot or fryer. Fry until golden brown and cooked through, turning with a wooden spoon for even browning, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on a wire rack over paper towels. Keep warm in the preheated 200° oven.
