Heat oil in the Cuisinart® 3.4-Quart Deep Fryer
until it reaches 375°F. While the oil is heating,
make the Hush Puppy batter.
Combine cornmeal, salt and baking soda in a
medium bowl. Stir in onion. Add buttermilk and
water  stir just to moisten the dry ingredients.
Form into rounded tablespoonfuls, drop carefully

turning once with a slotted spoon or wire
skimmer. Remove from the oil. Drain on layers of
paper towels. Serve immediately.
