  • Desalt the codfish.
  • Prepare the frying batter.
  • Lay the desalted codfish on a working surface and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Cut it in to bite sized pieces, keeping them as similar in size as possible so they can all cook at the same time.
  • Spread the 200 g of flour in a container. Add some salt and pepper and mix.
  • Dredge the pieces of fish in the flour mixture, until completely coated.
  • Shake off any excess flour.
  • Add a generous amount of vegetable oil to a pan and heat to 180*C (350* F).
  • Dip the pieces of fish in to the frying batter to coat completely.
  • Let excess batter drip off.
  • Carefully add the fish to the hot oil. Dip half of the piece in to the oil, gently move it around a little and when it puffs up a little you can release the other half in to the pan.
  • Remove any bits of batter so that they don’t burn.
  • Fry until they are golden on the first side. Turn them over and fry until they are crunchy and golden on the other side also.
  • When ready, remove from pan and place on paper towels so they can drain from any excess oil.
  • You can serve the fish in 2 different ways!
  • The first way would be in a traditional Greek manner.. which is with a potato garlic mash.
  • The second way is in a traditional English manner… which is with chips, tartar sauce and mushy peas.
  • Try both and enjoy!
