About this recipe: A popular Jamaican appetizer, these fried salted cod cakes can be made in any kitchen. Just stamp them out in the kitchen, take some for the road and go! Codfish can be prepared the day before for a quicker cook time. These are also good served with a spicy dipping sauce.
I kicked it up a notch by adding bonnet scotch. I blended that with the tomatoes, onions, pepper in my vitamix first then continued with the receipe! - 16 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
In the west indies it's also called "Bake and Saltfish." I usually make the saltfish very much like you did, but I add a few cloves of minced garlic. In NYC I ran across a deli that put shredded cabbage and carrots in the mixture; sounds kinda weird but it was fantasic! I've made it at home just the same. Kids and hubby loved it, and it helped stretch the saltfish, that is quite expensive in my area. - 01 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I tried it today... Left out the baking powder, added scotch bonnet AND cayenne pepper (I like my food spicy). They were PERFECT. It was my first time making them too. I even added (cooked) shrimp to some of the batter... - 26 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
