Jamaican Saltfish Fritters (Stamp and Go)
A popular Jamaican appetizer. Just stamp them out in the kitchen, take some for the road and go! Saltcod can be prepared the day before for a quicker cook time. These are also good served with a spicy dipping sauce.
If you can't soak the fish overnight, place salt cod in a saucepan. Fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse under cool water. Repeat with fresh water four more times. Taste to check salt level; if the fish is still too salty, repeat.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
