PT1H

1
First, prepare the batter for the cod. Add the flour and baking powder to a bowl, pour in the milk and whisk to form a thick pancake-like batter. If too thick, add a little milk to loosen
  • 150g of plain flour
  • 125ml of milk
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
2
Fold in the diced cod, shallots and spring onions. Season with salt and pepper and set aside
  • 200g of cod fillet, boneless, cut into 1cm cubes
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of black pepper
3
To prepare the salad, rinse and scrub the potatoes. Use an apple corer to punch out cylinders in the potatoes
  • 4 large potatoes
4
Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the potato cylinders and simmer over a medium heat until almost cooked, approximately 15 minutes
  • 1 pinch of salt
5
Once cooked, use a slotted spoon to gently remove the potatoes from the water, transfer to a container or salad bowl and set aside
6
Heat a deep-fat fryer to 150°C. Alternatively, fill a deep saucepan with oil to a third of the way up. Caution: hot oil can be dangerous
  • 1000ml of vegetable oil
7
Use a teaspoon to carefully drop pieces of the cod mixture into the hot oil. Fry until golden for about 3-4 minutes
8
Remove the cod popcorn carefully with a slotted spoon. Drain on kitchen towel
9
Meanwhile, combine the cucumber ribbons and potatoes in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix the buttermilk, mayonnaise and chives and spoon into the bowl with the potatoes and cucumber
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and cut into ribbons
  • 2 tbsp of buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp of mayonnaise
  • 1 bunch of chives
10
Divide the cod popcorn onto plates and serve alongside the cucumber and potato salad
