Jamaican Saltfish Fritters 

A popular Jamaican appetizer. Just stamp them out in the kitchen, take some for the road and go! Saltcod can be prepared the day before for a quicker cook time. These are also good served with a spicy dipping sauce

Ingredients:

6 ounces dried salted cod fish

cold water, to cover

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons ground black pepper

1/2 cup water

1 large tomato, chopped

2 green onions, chopped

vegetable oil for frying

Method:

  1. Soak the cod in cold water overnight to rehydrate it and remove excess salt .
  2. Remove any bones and skin. Flake and shred the fish into small pieces and set aside.
  3. Sift flour, baking powder, and pepper into a large bowl. Add the diced tomatoes, green onions, and flaked cod. Pour in 1/2 cup water and stir until everything is blended.
  4. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, drop rounded spoonfuls of batter into the skillet. Fry on each side until golden brown and crisp, about 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
