Vote for your Country in the Battle of the Islands! Salt Bread (Penny Bread)

Rating:   1 Reviews


Preparation Time: Marinate Overnight
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 12


  • 250g / 8 oz salt cod ~ soaked, cooked & drained
  • 125g / 4 oz / 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 180 ml / 6 oz / 3/4 cup milk
  • 15g / 1/2 oz / 1 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 onion, grated finely


  1. Marinate the cod overnight, change the water and simmer for 30 minutes, drain. Flake into small pieces or dice into 1/4 inch chunks (or smaller).
  2. Beat the egg, milk and butter together in a small bowl.
  3. Mix the flour & baking powder together in a large bowl or a large mixer bowl. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg, milk and butter mixture. Combine to a smooth batter.
  4. Stir in the onion, chili and cooked cod.
  5. Drop tablespoon-sized dollops of the mixture into a deep pan of hot olive oil and fry until golden brown. They can also be fried in shallow oil, but the effect is not the same.
  6. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. With any West Indians in the house they will not be around very long.
  7. But if you do need to hold them, freeze in a sealed container (or Ziploc bag), or place in a paper bag and keep refrigerated. Reheat in the oven or microwave, but use as soon as possible.

Reviewer: Karl A Massiah from Toronto (753)
This is a great recipe BUT really for Fish Cakes They are served inside a "Salt Bread" and it is the bread recipe which I need.
