    Just tried this. Perfection.
    I got about 28. They seem to be sized similar to yours so if at the end you had 12….. well you really sampled heartily while cooking!
    Hubby said it needs chutney, settled for store bought kutchela
    Thank you Chris

    Growing up in Montserrat, never paid attention as my Mom cooked. Thanks Caribbean pot, you are a perfect substitute teacher.
    Fantastic videos.

    This is a great recipe, Trinidadians use salt fish in many dishes & this is just one of them. The ingredients listed are perfect & the egg I think adds to the pillowy softness of the Accra that can be eaten long after it comes out the fryer. My parents actually knead all the ingredients in a dough and it comes out good as well but I much prefer the batter consistency. Thanks for posting this recipe.

    Here in Barbados making fishcakes is a huge part of our culture for centuries. We fry them in a buckpot (cast iron skillet) and serve between bajan salt bread! Glad the recipe is spreading! For those who have it available 1/4 teasp broad leaf thyme finely chopped adds to the flavour. In order to avoid the odor of boiling the fish you can either add a couple drops of lemon juice to the water or simply soak the fish beforehand in a large bowl of cold water for a couple hours changing the water at least two to three times.
    What I do is buy my fish in bulk, break it up, soak it and package it in serving portions. Store in freezer. That way it’s ready for use when needed! Sure enjoy the recipes!

    I’ve lived in Texas for 21 years, so I haven’t had accra in as many years. I found some cod fish on sale so I decided to try accra. To my surprise, it was awesome. My husband who is American asked me why I’m holding out on him. I’m having some friends over and I’m planning on these as an appetizer. i also made tamarind sauce to go along with them. It was a hit. Will be making them very often from now on. Thanks for the recipe.

    Hi Chris,
    This is a great tasty dish, can tuna be used instead?

    this looks great, want to try, but for health reasons could they be baked instead of fried (do not laugh)
