Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Wash and pat the Cod Fillet (1 lb) and dry with some paper towels. Then cut into chunks and place into a food processor.
step 2
Give the fish a few pulses in the food processor and remember to scrape down the side so you get an even consistency.
step 3
Add the Parmesan Cheese (3/4 cup), Fresh Parsley (1 Tbsp), Fresh Thyme (1 Tbsp), Garlic (2 cloves), Eggs (2), Panko Breadcrumbs (3/4 cup), Salt (1/4 tsp), Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp), and Scotch Bonnet Pepper (1/2).
step 4
Pulse for a minute or two and remember to stop to scrape down, until you have a well mixed consistency.
step 5
Shape this into the small balls for frying. Take about a tablespoon's worth of filling and roll in your hands to form the ball.
step 6
Roll balls in All-Purpose Flour (1/2 cup) and coat evenly.
step 7
Heat the Vegetable Oil (as needed) over medium-high heat and fry balls for 3-4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
step 8
Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.
