A proper Bajan Fish Cake is in a league of its own. They are great as an appetizer and snack. Bajan fish cakes have their beginnings in the island's many rum shops. They'd make the fish cakes to sell to their customers stopping by for a drink or two, playing a game of dominoes, cards, and catching up on the news and gossip of the day. The shop owners would make the fish cakes by pounding the salt fish, adding garlic and lots of hot pepper with just a little flour to hold the frizzled salt fish together. The addition of baking powder came years later. Two fish cakes sandwiched between a cut salt bread, is known as a Bread 'n Two.
