Fritters are internationally appreciated. We love them in the Caribbean with Sea Foods. The prawn and salt fish one are commonly sold by people in the community through word of mouth, via social media or at public events.

Course: Appetizer, Salad
Cuisine: Caribbean
Servings: 2 Person
  • 500 g Salt fish
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1 Lime
  • 2 Garlic
  • 2 Onion
  • 1 Parsley
  • 1 Can Condensed milk
  • 1 Packet Baking powder
  • 1 Hot pepper scotch bonnet Optional
Plain Flour - the quantity will have to be evaluated by you subject to the quantity you want to fry.
This is How I Do
  1. Season your Salt Fish with the lime, parsley, garlic, onion and a little bit of salt (your salt fish was supposed to soak in a big bowl of cold water to remove as much as the salt possible)

  2. Grate the carrots and add it to the seasoned salt fish

  3. Pour in the above mix some milk with the baking soda.

    And slowly add the plain flour

  4. Add as much of the milk and the flour until you get a not too liquid mix, as shown on the picture below

  5. Fry your fritters using a big spoon by pouring the mix in hot oil.
