Accras - Cod Fritters Recipe
Accras - Cod Fritters
Flavors of Martinique
Total time: more than 2 hours

 Desalt the fish overnight. 

Prep. time: 15 minutes
Resting time: 1 hour
Cooking time: A few minutes

Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note

To keep the fritters from being too salty, soak the salt cod in water overnight, changing the water at least 3 times.

The oil should not be too hot, otherwise the accras will get too dark before they are cooked. 

Serve the accras as an appetizer with a rum punch for an exotic authentic flavor!
