Make our Long John Silver’s Hush Puppies Recipe at home tonight for your family. With our Secret Restaurant Recipe your Hush Puppies will taste just like Long John’s.

A couple of notes about the recipe –

  • Long John Silver’s Hush Puppies do contain onion.  Some traditional Southern hush puppies recipes do, some don’t.  Some people like onion, some don’t.  You can leave it out — but Long John Silver’s Hush Puppies do contain onion.
  • There is no salt (other than Garlic Salt) or pepper listed in the recipe because there is none added to the Long John Silver’s Hush Puppies mixed in the store (according to all our sources.)  This recipe is quick and easy to make, so you may want to use a little trial and error here before you make it for a party or for guests.  We like ours with just a smidge of both.

Southern fish houses have the best hush puppies.  And onion rings.  That’s not a note – just our personal opinion.  But…we are right. 😉

Plain ol’ Ketchup is a really dipping sauce for these Hush Puppies. It goes especially well with the onion flavor.

We also love to dip our Hush Puppies into Tartar Sauce — since we usually enjoy them at Fish Houses.  Here are a couple of good recipes for you to dip your Pups in:
