Saltfish Fritter Recipe – A Caribbean Treat

A Saltfish Fritter is always a treat for either breakfast, lunch or dinner! I like to make them as an easy weeknight dinner or a treat after church on Sundays.  Saltfish fritter and some fried plantains and I am good to to go! On Nevis, my favorite place for this treat is at Oualie Beach Resort Hotel

They can also be served as a tasty snack, and make a great appetizer as a finger food.  They are cooked relatively easy and go great with a bit of mango salsa on the side for dipping.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
