SALT COD FRITTERS BY BRIAN DANCLAIR, FISH WINGS & TINGS
For the fritters -
350g salt cod
375g self-raising flour
1½ tsp baking powder
1 heaped tsp caster sugar
1 tsp sea salt
1 large onion, peeled and diced
1 bunch spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced
1-2 scotch bonnet or habanero chillies, or to taste, finely chopped (if you prefer less heat, remove and discard the pith and seeds)
1 litre vegetable oil, for frying
For the aïoli -
500ml good mayonnaise, homemade or bought
5cm piece fresh ginger, peeled
1 scotch bonnet pepper
50g caster sugar
25-30ml clear white vinegar
Juice of 1 lime
Soak the salt cod in cold water overnight, changing the water at least once. Next day, drain the fish and put it in a high-sided dish in which it fits snugly. Cover with just-boiled water, leave to rehydrate and cool for 15 minutes, then strain. Set aside in one piece for now.
Meanwhile, put all the aïoli ingredients in a blender and blitz smooth – you want the mix to be pretty loose for ease of dipping.
In a large bowl, mix the self-raising flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Shred the cod and add to the bowl with the onion, spring onions and chillies, then gradually mix in 750ml water bit by bit, breaking up the fish some more as you go, until there are no clumps and the batter is thick but still runny enough to slip through your fingers.
Put the oil in a deep saucepan and heat to 75-80C (or when a small piece of bread starts to bubble the moment you drop it in). With wet hands, pinch off small balls of the batter mix and, taking care not to burn yourself, drop into the oil. Fry in batches for two or three minutes, turning regularly, until the fritters are golden brown and cooked in the middle. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked fritters to a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain, and keep warm while you repeat with the remaining batter.
Put five or six fritters on each plate and serve with ramekins of the aïoli for dipping.
