Popcorn Cod Recipe

Popcorn Cod Recipe

1. To start, prepare the batter for the cod. In a bowl add the flour and baking powder, pour the milk into the bowl and whisk it to form a thick batter. If it's too thick add a little milk to loosen it.
2. Fold the diced cod, shallots and spring onions into the bowl of batter mixture. Season with salt and pepper and put to one side.
3. Now prepare the salad, scrub the potatoes. Using an apple corer, punch out cylinder shapes in the potatoes.
4. In a large pan, bring some salted water to the boil. Add the potatoes and simmer on a medium heat until almost cooked, approximately 15 minutes.
5. When cooked, gently remove the potatoes from the pan, transfer to a bowl and put to one side.
6. Now heat a deep-fat fryer to 150°C or, fill a large saucepan with oil to a third of the way up. Caution: the hot oil can be very dangerous.
7. Using a teaspoon carefully drop the pieces of the cod mixture into the hot oil. Fry the cod pieces until golden for about 3-4 minutes.
8. With a slotted spoon carefully remove the cod popcorn from the oil. Drain on kitchen towel.
9. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the cucumber and potatoes. In a small bowl, mix together the buttermilk, mayonnaise and chives, spoon this into the bowl with the potatoes and cucumber.
10. Separate the cod popcorn into four portions onto plates and serve together with the cucumber and potato salad.
