"My parents split the cooking pretty evenly growing up, but my dad definitely specialized in fritters of various kinds. These sailfish fritters were a treat that he made less frequently (more likely to buy it) but a definite favorite. We tended to have them in the morning - for breakfast or an early afternoon snack."
Soak the cod in cold water overnight to rehydrate it and remove excess salt.
Remove any bones and skin. Flake and shred the fish into small pieces and set aside.
Sift flour, baking powder, and pepper into a large bowl. Add the diced tomatoes, green onions, and flaked cod. Pour in 1/2 cup water and stir until everything is blended.
Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, drop rounded spoonfuls of batter into the skillet. Fry on each side until golden brown and crisp, about 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
Play with it! And be careful with frying - you want crispy but a lighter brown color. :)
