Caribbean Salt Cod Fritters Video Recipe

Caribbean Salt Cod Fritters


When I first posted this video recipe on my YouTube channel I got lots of questions about the origin of salt cod in the Caribbean. Viewers often asked, “Why would anyone in the Caribbean make fritters out of salted cod versus fresh fish?”  Well, here’s the answer.

Salt cod shares a history with the slave trade. It was a food preserved for the long ship journeys from Africa to the Americas and the Caribbean where it became food for the enslaved. Through the years, salted fish recipes developed in the region that have become island staples – salted fish and green banana pie, salt fish fritters, ackee and salt-fish,  salt fish stew and salt cod fritters.
