What time is it?
I’ve made these delicious and gorgeous cod fritters for lunch today.
Unfortunately, I made lunch at half 10 this morning 🤔
But, we’ll call it a snack and it’ll be fine.
Anyone else have trouble adjusting to the clocks going back?
Fritters are a fantastic weaning food as they provide pretty much any food into a soft easy to handle bite for your little one. Don’t forget to check out my recipe for Pea and Broccoli Fritters
I had a few good spoons of leftover mashed potato in the fridge, so I defrosted a cod fillet, chopped it up and mixed it together with the potato and a medium egg.
I have also made these using leftover fish from the day before, just flake it up and add it to the potato.
I then added a sprinkle of garlic powder and paprika.
Similar recipes I’ve seen suggest the mixture should be thick and rolled into balls, but I prefer a looser texture that can be spooned into the oil, as I find it gives it a softer and moister texture when it’s cooked. However, this does show that the amount of Mash you add can vary and can be personalised by you.
I gently heated a pan of oil to a medium temperature, I’m happy to deep fry these, but you can shallow fry if you’d prefer, they’d just be a different shape. Which ever method you choose do it safely. They need approximately 3-4 minutes on each side depending on the size of your fritters. Just make sure they’re hot all the way through.
OB has been a little of his food since he’s been ill, so we’re using a new pirate plate and hiding the character, if he wants to see what’s underneath, he’s got to eat! Sometimes you try anything.
To make them adult friendly, I cooked 4 for OB, then added a touch more garlic and paprika and some salt mixed it up and cooked some for Mr M and I.
