With just one click, all these ingredients will be put into a basket on mySupermarket.co.uk.
You can select the products you need, compare prices and choose the retailer you wish to buy them from. Or you can leave them in your basket and come back later to buy items from other recipes.
One thing is for sure though, you are guaranteed to find the best value.
Method1. Mix the flaked salt fish with the onion, scotch bonnet pepper, shallots, herbs, flour and baking powder.
2. Pour in the milk and water and stir until you have a slack dough-like mixture, loose enough to just fall off the spoon. Add a little more water if necessary.
3. Heat the oil in a large pan for deep-frying. It should be hot enough that a cube of bread sizzles when dropped in. Dip the head of a metal tablespoon into the oil then use to scoop up spoonfuls of the salt fish mixture (the oil will stop the mixture sticking to the spoon). Drop into the hot oil and fry in batches until golden and crisp.
4. Carefully remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain off excess oil on kitchen paper. Serve while still hot and crisp.
