Fried Hot Tamales

We were in Indianola, Mississippi, earlier this month for the groundbreaking of the B.B. King Museum and made our first visit to The Bourbon Mall near Leland. It's way out in the cotton country, in an old commissary built right after the 1927 Mississippi River flood. We had some fine catfish and red snapper. And the appetizer that draws the most attention, the Delta being such a hotbed of tamale culture, is fried hot tamales, served with ranch dressing. I won't say they are an improvement over the traditional way of serving a tamale, but they're a novelty I'd never come across and one I'd order again. And I highly recommend a visit to The Bourbon Mall.
