A delicous fish appetiser, which is simple to make. They are crispy, well-flavoured and go well with a spicy dipping sauce.
Can be purchased in Mediterranean or Caribbean speciality shops.
Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.
I kicked it up a notch by adding bonnet scotch. I blended that with the tomatoes, onions, pepper in my vitamix first then continued with the receipe! - 16 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
In the west indies it's also called "Bake and Saltfish." I usually make the saltfish very much like you did, but I add a few cloves of minced garlic. In NYC I ran across a deli that put shredded cabbage and carrots in the mixture; sounds kinda weird but it was fantasic! I've made it at home just the same. Kids and hubby loved it, and it helped stretch the saltfish, that is quite expensive in my area. - 01 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I tried it today... Left out the baking powder, added scotch bonnet AND cayenne pepper (I like my food spicy). They were PERFECT. It was my first time making them too. I even added (cooked) shrimp to some of the batter... - 26 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
