Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: Bajan


  • 1 onion, diced

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 small hot pepper, finely diced
  • chopped parsley, thyme and marjoram
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless salt cod
  • 1 cup water


  • To prepare the salted cod, boil in 6 cups of water for 4 minutes. Throw off the water and boil a second time for 3 minutes. Flake the fish with a fork.
  • In a bowl, combine the flaked fish with the other ingredients. Stir until a thick batter forms. You can add more water or more flour to get the desired consistency.
  • Drop the batter by teaspoonful into oil over medium heat, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. You may need to turn the heat down to medium-low if the fish cakes are burning before being fully cooked.
  • Drain on paper towels. Fish cakes are best eaten hot!
