I need a recipe for Jamaican saltfish fritters

lemony05 | Dec 4, 2012 12:56 PM

My boyfriend asked me to make them. He says his mom made them before and they are nice. He likes Caribbean cuisine as his real dad is from Barbados so I guess it is in his genes to like it.
He told me to put lots of spring onions in them and he wants them hot.
I looked up some recipes but I am not convinced. He asked me to make Jamaican patties some days ago and all the recipes I found said to use minced beef; he hated them, saying they tasted of just curried mince and that the real ones are not made with mince, so I don't know if I should trust online recipes.
I have been soaking the saltfish for about 2 days now. Does it still need boiling? Can anyone give me an authentic recipe, considering the fritters are just for me and him?.
I don't wanna ask his mom how to make them because I don't like her so the less I deal with her the better :). Thanks in advance.
