Codfish Fritters

In Jamaica we call this, "Stamp and Go." This is usually used as a snack. It is available throughout the island.

1/4 lb. raw codfish, (Dried Salted Codfish)
1/4 lb. flour 1 medium sized onion
2 medium sized tomatoes
1 small clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 stalks escallion (or leeks)
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper

Wash codfish with lime or lemon juice, dry and dice or shred finely.

Chop very fine the onions, garlic, escallion or leeks, hot pepper and tomatoes, combine.

In a skillet using a small amount of oil, fry the chopped seasoning until thoroughly cooked.

Place the codfish in a mixing bowl and to this add the flour and sufficient cold water to make a batter similar to that of pancakes- quite thin, stirring until smooth.

Add the fried seasoning and the paprika.

Have a skillet well heated with oil for frying, using a moderate amount of oil.

Spoon the batter in the skillet as you would for pancakes, but use a knife to spread each fritter thin.

Fry until golden brown and crisp on both sides.

Drain on paper towels and enoy!!
