Vegan Bacalaitos Gluten Free

Let me tell you that these Bacalaitos, or non-cod fish fritters were delicious! The texture of the jackfruit is a perfect substitute for the flaky cod fish. I serve these alongside mayo ketchup and the rest is history. I did use Bobs red mill gluten-free flour blend but another really great one is the King Arthur gluten-free flour blend. 

1ea Green Jackfruit (20oz can, drained, marinated-see marinade)

1c Gluten-free Flour Blend ( I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten-free flour blend)

1ea Flax Egg (1T ground flaxseed 2T Water)

1/2t Baking Powder

1/2T Cilantro (fresh, chopped)

1/2T Garlic (fresh, chopped)

1/2t All-purpose seasoning ( your preferred, or adobo)

2-4T Water

2c Canola Oil

Jackfruit (Cod Fish) Marinade:

4c Water

1c Kombu

1-2 t Sea Salt


-Cutting Board

-Chef's Knife

-Serving Dishes

In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients with the exception of the water and oil. Mix until thoroughly combined. Add two tablespoons of water at a time and more as needed to achieve a thick batter consistency.

Heat oil on medium high heat, spoon batter into hot oil and cook 2-3 minutes until bacalaitos are golden brown and cooked through. Remove from hot oil with slotted spoon and drain on paper towel lined tray. Allow to cool slightly and serve.

*Marinade Jack fruit overnight for best results.
