Cod fritters, a fantastic starter

Cod fritters

I love the simplicity of these cod fritters. I recently prepared them as a starter at a celebration and they couldn't have liked more. And it only took me 20 minutes to make them, just like you hear! Would you like to try them? Then take good note of the recipe and get down to the dough.

A good cod and a few ingredients for the batter is all you need to prepare them. And in the choice of batter ingredients there is the key Because yes, you can make them with wheat flour but if you have the chance to get it, try rice flour!

Rice flour and beer make the batter of these fritters very crunchy. That if to enjoy this texture, which is the art of the grace of these cod fritters, you will have to make them at the time of serving them. Alone they are delicious, but a little aioli or mayonnaise can brighten them up.

The recipe

Cod fritters, a fantastic starter
These cod fritters with extra crunchy batter are ideal as a starter. Serve them alone or with aioli and you will succeed.
Recipe type: Fish
Rations: 6–8
Preparation time: 
Cooking time: 
Total time: 
  • 400-420g. desalted cod (in loins)
  • 1 egg
  • 150 g. rice flour
  • 1½ teaspoons chemical yeast
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Sal Island
  • 40-50ml cold beer
  • Virgin olive oil for frying
  1. Cut the cod loins into bite-sized pieces and dry them well with absorbent paper.
  2. Then in a bowl we beat the egg and once done add the rice flour, the yeast, the crushed or grated garlic clove, the salt and 40 ml of cold beer. We beat until we have a homogeneous paste.
  3. Does the batter have the proper consistency? This should resemble a light custard. Add a piece of fish: if the batter covers it well, without leaving gaps, it is suitable for battering. Is it too dense? We added some more beer. Too runny? We add more flour.
  4. Once the batter is done we heat olive oil in a small but deep pan so that it covers the cod pieces.
  5. When the oil is hot, we pass the cod through the batter first and then fry until golden brown.
  6. As we make them, we take them out and we let drain on absorbent paper.
  7. We serve the cod fritters immediately.
