Ingredients

3/4 cup milk
1 2/3 cups self-rising cornmeal
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeño pepper or green bell pepper
1 egg, beaten
Cooking oil for deep-frying
Tartar Sauce
1 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons dill pickle relish

Preparation

Stir together milk and TABASCO® Green Sauce; set aside to thicken.

Combine cornmeal and flour in a medium mixing bowl. In another bowl combine thickened milk mixture, onion, jalapeño pepper, and egg. Add egg mixture to cornmeal mixture and stir just until moistened.

Pour 2 to 3 inches of oil into a deep-fat fryer or deep skillet and heat to 375°F. Drop batter by tablespoons, 4 to 5 at a time, into hot oil. Fry about 1 minute or until crisp and golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately with Tartar Sauce.

Tartar Sauce: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
