  • ½ lb. desalted and shredded cod
  • 1 ½ cup wheat flour
  • 1 ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 sweet peppers chopped
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • 1 sachet of seasoning with coriander and achiote
  • 4 cups corn oil or lard for frying


  • Place the cod in a container with water and let stand for several hours, then drain and remove the water. Prepare a saucepan with water and add the cod. Cook for 5-8 minutes. Drain and crumble.
  • In a container add the cod with the rest of the ingredients and mix until combined.
  • In a skillet, heat the corn oil.
  • Add the mixture by spoonfuls and fry until golden brown on both sides. Serve immediately.
  • NOTE: Remember to move the mixture every time you go to prepare the fritters, since the flour separates from the water.
  • You can use olive oil prepared with achiote and eliminate the seasoning with coriander and achiote.
  • I recommend using a shallow pan to fry the codfish.
