Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g salted cod
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 scotch bonnet chilli, finely chopped
1 egg
200g plain flour
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 litre vegetable oil, to deep-fry

Method

  1. Place the salted cod in a bowl of cold water and soak for 4 hours, changing the water every hour.
  2. Flake the salted cod finely with a fork or in a food processor, then mix with the red pepper, onion, chilli, egg, black pepper and 150ml water. Stir in the flour to form a wet batter.
  3. Heat the oil in a wok or saucepan to 180°C, or until a cube of bread dropped in fizzes and turns golden within 30 seconds. Carefully drop heaped tablespoons of batter into the hot oil (you will get about 5 in one pan) and fry for 2 minutes on each side until golden brown and crisp. Drain on kitchen paper and repeat until the batter is used up. Serve immediately, sprinkled with sea salt.
