Adapted from fried Caribbean accras, which are made from salted cod. A recipe that my dad used to make on the occasional Sunday. I didn't have salted cod, so I substituted canned sockeye salmon and it turned out awesome.

  • Heat 1/4 inch oil in a frying pan just below the medium heat setting. Scoop up 1 tablespoon batter per fritter; drop carefully into the hot oil in batches of 3. Fry until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a dish lined with paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining batter for about 16 fritters in total.

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
