REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
For the other reviewers, the recipe posted here is from the cookbook, not necessarily the restaurant. That said, these are very good hush puppies. They have tons of flavor and really good texture. I would like to try the recipe mentioned by the others though that contains the seafood (I bet those are divine!)

I have eaten at Bubba Gumps in Miineapolis,Chicago,&Colorado. All the hush pups included mahi mahi,shrimp and crab. When I questioned the waitress she said they started with a rice base. Wisnh I had a recipes for those!

When I had hush puppies at the Bubba Gump's in Monterey California, they had rice and shrimp as well as, I think, some crab. They are the best I've ever experienced. The recipe posted does not include all of the ingredients for the version served in Monterey.
