Saltfish fritters are a Caribbean favourite; here's a version using an island fruit: breadfruit!


  • Breadfruit Flour 1 1/2 cups

  • Saltfish, soaked, deboned and flaked 8 oz

  • Medium onion, chopped

  • Stalk escallion, chopped

  • Medium tomato, diced

  • Water or milk 1 cup

  • Medium egg (optional)

  • Salt 1 tsp (optional)

  • Black pepper 1/2 tsp

  • Scotch bonnet pepper, deseed, finely chopped 1/2 tsp

  • Grace Vegetable Oil 1/2 cup


  1. In a large bowl place Breadfruit Flour, flaked saltfish, chopped onion, escallion and diced tomatoes and mix well.

  2. Gradually add water to make a smooth batter, then egg (if used). Batter should be thick and of a dropping consistency.

  3. Season with salt (if used), black pepper and scotch bonnet pepper.

  4. In a large skillet heat Grace Vegetable Oil, drop batter by tablespoons full into hot oil and fry until brown on one side, turn and continue frying until done. Drain on absorbent paper towel.

Serve hot and share with friends.
