Bolinos de Bacalhau - Brazilian Deep Fried Fish Fritters

These are my version of the traditional deep fried salt cod fritters – I’ve used fresh haddock but if you can get hold of salt cod lucky you! These are great to serve with drinks at a party.

Ingredients

Method

  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to190 degrees C.

  • 2.

    Cook the haddock with the milk and bay leaves, in a tray covered with foil, for 15 minutes.

  • 3.

    Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for about 15 minutes until soft. Drain them, then dry out in the pan on the heat and mash.

  • 4.

    Flake the cooked fish into a large bowl, picking out any bones. Add the mashed potato, finely chopped parsley and mint, lemon zest, eggs, chilli and salt and pepper. Mix well, taste … and add more salt if necessary.

  • 5.

    Flour your work surface, then take 1 tablespoon of the mix in your hands with a little flour and make into torpedo-shaped fritters, rolling in the flour. Rough and ready is good.

  • 6.

    Pour enough oil into a large heavy-bottomed saucepan to fill the pan about a third of the way up. Heat over a medium heat until a deep frying thermometer inserted into the oil reaches 360 degrees F. (If you don’t have a thermometer, a cube of bread will brown in about 3 minutes.) Deep-fry the fritters for about 5 minutes until brown and crispy. Drain on kitchen towel, sprinkle with sea salt and serve on a large plate with lots of lemon halves.
