Jamaican Saltfish Fritters (Breakfast Style)

More Jamaican Food Recipes on my blog
Many Jamaicans will tell you that as a young child their Grandmother, or mother prepared fritters in the morning for breakfast to eat. I love them. They taste great, are easy to make and are one of those fun foods that you eat with your hands.  Now its your turn to enjoy this delicious Jamaican style breakfast treat!

Please visit your local Caribbean food market to purchase the list of ingredients.

Here is the list of ingredients.

1 half pound of salt fish, PLEASE BE SURE TO BUY THE BONELESS SALT FISH!!!!!1 onion1 scotch bonnet pepper1 clove of garlic3 cups of flour, depending on how much fritters you wantpinch of salt1/2 teaspoon of black pepper 2 cups of watercooking oilSome paper towel to absorb excess oil

Preparing to cook your Jamaican breakfast Fritters

Soak the salt fish in water for about a half an hourChop the garlic, pepper and onion in to fine  pieces.Flake the fish in to small pieces with your fingers, once it’s soaked. Put the flour into a bowl, and Stir in the onion, garlic, pepper, salt and pepper mixture. Slowly stir in the water, stop adding the water when the mixture has a slightly gloppy in  consistency.

Cooking Your Jamaican Style fritters

Fill a frying pan with about a quarter deep of the cooking oil.Use a table-spoon to pick up your Fritters mix.Spoon as much of the batter on to the table-spoon as you can without going over.Place your fritters batter into the frying pan.  Each table-spoon will be one fritter.Fry each fritter for about 6-10 minutes until brown, if its turning black then you burned it.Turn over and fry the other side. Place the fritters on to some paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Your Fritters are ready to eat. Enjoy.

    yummmm…. I actually love saltfish, not much of a fryer but will try the fritters. I love saltfish with chopped onions,peppers,garlic and herbs. I keep this in my fridge and have it for the next few days on bread or a side dish or in salad, oh i also always add my scorpion sauce.
