Simple and easy hush puppies.

Air Fryer Hush Puppies

Forget about deep frying, and give your hush puppies a light update using an air fryer. They're just a bit denser in texture than deep frying, and look for a subtle hint of heat. They're the perfect sidekick to fried fish or shrimp, but they're equally good with a drizzle of honey.

I don't normally like hush puppies. They are generally too dry, too dense, and too bland for my taste. After tasting some in a restaurant that I actually liked, I decided to come up with a recipe of my own. This one deliberately uses stuff right out of the pantry so that it can be whipped up quickly and served fast.

Hawaiian Hush Puppies

Rating: 5 stars 1
This was given to me by a friend years ago. I have since tweaked it to my liking and think you will like it also. I have eaten it many times with fried tilapia. I call them Hawaiian hush puppies because that's what they remind me of with the pineapples and slight sweetness.
