How to prepare Cod fritters

To prepare cod fritters, start with cleaning the cod. Make sure your cod has already been desalted, otherwise you can do it yourself. At this point, remove the skin from the fillet, using a very sharp knife and sliding it parallel to the meat 1. First cut the piece of fish into strips 2 and then cut it into cubes and chop it with a knife 3.

Once coarsely chopped, transfer it to a small bowl and add marjoram leaves 4. In another bowl, sift the two flours together 5 and add the brewer's yeast 6.

Pour iced water slowly and whisk 7, until you get a smooth and homogeneous batter 8. Add the cod and mix everything 9.

Add ground black pepper 10 and a pinch of salt if necessary. Wrap with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for about 20 minutes in a cool place. Then, heat the oil for frying in a large pan until it reaches a temperature of 345°F (175°C). You can measure the temperature with a kitchen thermometer. Once the oil is hot, create some balls with the mixture 12

and dip them in the boiling oil 13. Fry few pieces at a time for about 6-7 minutes, turning them often. When they turn golden brown 14, drain them on a tray lined with absorbent paper 15. Continue frying until the dough is finished and serve your cod fritters still hot!


It is advisable to consume the freshly prepared cod fritters immediately. It is not advisable to store them in the refrigerator as fried food will lose its fragrance.


Try adding some pitted and chopped black olives or dried tomatoes: they will be even more delicious!
