Airy with a kick. That’s how I would describe these wonderful accras from Martinique. They are typically made with cod, but the shrimp variation is excellent. The accras manage to achieve that perfect crunchy/moist combination you want in your finger foods. They are also packed with flavors, from the herbs and the chilis. I didn’t have any mild peppers handy, so I used a third of a very spicy chili pepper. It turned out great. The shrimps tasted fresh and I had a lot of fun making sure I had one medium shrimp in each accra and the fried batter was as mentioned earlier, airy. Perfect score.
