Gluten-Free Saltfish Fritters

Going to Jamaica made me really crave the foods that I grew up with but that I’ve since sworn off since going gluten-free.  I loved having saltfish fritters growing up, but I hadn’t eaten it in years because it wasn’t gluten-free (it’s made with a batter).

I thank my lucky stars that I was able to change that!

Here it is, in all of its gluten-free fabulosity.  In my next trick, I’m going to try and see if I can make these babies paleo!

Ingredients

1/2 pound salted codfish

1 tbsp ketchup (optional)

1 cup rice flour

1 tsp baking powder

3/4 cup cold water

2 stalks of green onion/scallion/spring onions

1 tsp thyme

1 tomato, chopped,

1/2 salt (optional)

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 egg

1 scotch bonnet pepper, chopped (optional)

cayenne/black pepper (to taste)

Here’s how to make ’em:
