Stamp and Go and callaloo fritters

Stamp and Go is a fish fritter made with salt fish in Jamaican cuisine.[1] It is part of a Jamaican breakfast along with ackee and callaloo fritters.[1] It is referred to as one of the original fast foods in Jamaica. The unusual name is supposed to have derived from the 18-th century British sailing ships. If an officer wanted something to be done in a hurry the order was "Stamp and Go!". These bite sized, salty delights are a favorite at cocktail parties served with tangy dips. The larger ones are great for breakfast and one can well imagine just how popular this "journey" food was many years ago.[2]
