While M and I were on our Carnival Cruise with the Capital Jazz Super Cruise, we had the chance to visit Martinique. One of the first things I do prior to whenever we visit a new place, is do a bit of research online to discover popular local dishes and drinks (but sometimes I just stumble across them after our arrival).
One of the dishes that came up for Martinique was Accras de Morue, a bite-size, fried fish dish. We tried them at one of the local restaurants, and we both loved them, so one of the first things I did when we came home was try my hand at making them myself. I made a few personal changes of my own to the traditional recipes that I found online, and we brought them over to my parents’ house for a family dinner. They were a huge hit and my dad has already asked me to make them again.
Accras de Morue are typically made with dry, salted cod, but I didn’t have the time to soak the cod, so I went with fresh cod. In doing this, I had to add quite a bit more salt to the batter, but they still tasted delicious.

Have you ever tried to make a dish at home that you’ve discovered while traveling? I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
