Using a large dutch oven, preheat oil for frying to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, parsley, baking powder, seasoned salt, onion powder, and garlic powder. Add buttermilk and egg. Stir well.
Drop by teaspoonful into hot oil. Cook in batches until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per batch.
Remove from oil with a long-handled wire strainer. Drain on a baking sheet covered with paper towels. Makes about 30 hush puppies.
