Step 1
Wash and pat the Cod Fillets (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 (3 cups) over medium-high heat and fry balls for 3-4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
Step 8
Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.
