Martinique: Accras

Accras, the ubiquitous cod fritters served throughout the French island with the apéritif were originally made with vegetables. Locals often eat them wedged between two hefty slices of baguette, the way they were eaten during the first half of the 20th century by workers as a breakfast staple. Today, fancy accras can be found in upscale restaurants made with shrimp or sea urchin, but the best are at Chez Carole, a simple eatery at the back of the colorful Fort-de-France market.
