1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 cup vegetable oil


Place salmon in a large bowl. Do not drain. Remove the bones and stir in the onion, egg, cornmeal, salt, pepper, garlic powder and hot sauce. If the mixture is too moist, add more cornmeal.
