Known as many names across the islands, Salt fish Fritters are a popular snack across the Caribbean. They are incredibly easy to make and great an appetizer and brunch snack.

We usually whip up a batch of Salt Fish Fritters on the weekends. They make a great breakfast paired with sliced Avocado and baked roti.

There are different variations across the Caribbean, however we all use the same staple ingredients: Flaked salt fish, spring onion, herb, bell pepper, seasoning and scotch bonnet pepper.

They usually come flat like pancakes or in the form of a puff puff or as Bajan’s call it “bakes”.

Which ever way you like them, there’s nothing better than to taste the salty sweet and spicy combo with every crispy bite.

Making Salt Fish Fritters

Making fritters is super easy, to the point measuring will become a thing of the past once you get used to it.

  1. Mix flour, water, baking powder and seasonings creating a batter similar to pancake mix.
  2. Throw in the flaked fish, veggies and herbs and mix well.
  3. pour mix into a hot pan with 1 or 2 tbsp of oil and shallow fry until both sides are golden brown.

It’s that simple.

How to Store Salt Fish Fritters

The batter will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, however cooked fritters can keep up to 1 week in an air tight container.

Reheat them in a microwave or in the oven for crisp edges.
