4 Ounces all purpose flour
4 Teaspoons vegetable oil
5 Ounces warm water
2 Egg whites
8 Ounces saltfish, soaked, and flaked
6 Chives finely chopped
1 Scotch bonnet pepper minced
Vegetable oil for frying

Cooking Method:

Sift flour and salt into a a large mixing bowl.
Add the oil and water and beat to a smooth batter, don’t over-mix.
Whisk egg white in a grease free bowl until stiff.
Fold egg whites into the batter.
Add the saltfish, chives, and pepper to batter, and mix well to combine.
Heat oil in a large shallow frying pan.
Drop a few spoonfuls of the fritter mix into the oil and fry for 3-4 minutes, turning with a spoon, until golden brown. Drain on a cooling rack.
Repeat process until all the fritter mixture is used up.
Serves 10 – 12 as a starter.

Mango chutney goes well as a dip for these fritters.  Personally I dunk them in a glass of Guinness :)
