Ingredients

  • ACRAS BATTER:

  • 1

    cup flour

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1/2

    cup milk

  • CODFISH:

  • 1/2

    pound salted codfish flaked

  • 1

    sprig fresh thyme

  • 2

    sprigs flat-leaf parsley

  • 1

    scallion, including green top

  • 2

    chives

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1/2

    Scotch Bonnet chile

  • Corn oil for frying

Directions

For the batter, mix the flour and the seasoning together in a medium-size bowl. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and break the eggs into the well 1 at a time while beating the mixture until it has become a thick, uniform paste. Cover the bowl with a dampened cloth and allow it to rest for 1 to 4 hours. For the fish, place the flaked codfish, thyme, parsley, scallion, chives, allspice, and chile in the bowl of a food processor and grind them together into a thick paste. Fold this paste into the acras batter. Meanwhile, heat 2 inches of corn oil to 350 to 375 degrees in a heavy cast-iron pot or deep fryer. Drop the acras into it by the teaspoonful. Fry until they are light brown, turning once. When done, remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. This recipe yields 6 servings.
