Bakaliaros

Bakaliaros is a very popular dish in Greece throughout the year, but especially on the celebration of 25th March. Traditionally, this dish is made with salt cod fish, which is soaked in water for at least 48 hours, in order to leach the salt.

If you wish to avoid this lengthy process, prepare the cod fritters with some fresh cod fish, which is even better, though a bit more expensive. Ideally serve with some Greek-style garlicky mashed potatoes called skordalia and enjoy a delicious meal! Here is what you need to make it.


·            1kg of salted cod
·                oil for frying    
·            5dl water
·            500g flour
·            330ml beer
·            10g dry yeast
·            a pinch of salt


To make this dish you first have to dry well the fish with paper towel and remove all the bones. Cut into small bites, 4-5 cm.
To prepare the batter for the cod fritters add into a bowl the beer, the water and the yeast and mix with a whisk, until the yeast is dissolved. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk, until the batter is smooth. Then dip the fish in it.
