 Cod Fish Cakes Recipe

Cod fish cakes are a great duo with beans. Also, a little brown bread and butter would be yummy.

 1 lb. of salt cod ( at times it's available in those little wooden boxes )
 4 large potatoes peeled and cut in quarters
 3 eggs
 1/3 cup of parsley finely chopped
 1 tbsp. of onion finely chopped
 1/2 tsp. black pepper (note below)

Frank, who has tried this recipe, suggests that you add 2 tablespoons of red pepper instead of the black to enhance the flavor.



 

Soak cod fish overnight. The next day pour off old water and add new  enough to cover the fish. Bring fish to a boil. This reduces the amount of salt  in the fish. If after the water boils the fish is still salty change the water and boil again.

Meanwhile cook the potatoes until tender. Mash the cod and the potatoes together. Add the eggs, parsley, onion, and pepper mix this well.

Shape into balls and flatten out to the shape of a patty. Fry them in oil until golden brown   all over. Drain on paper towels.

P.S. If the mix is to moist use flour to dry it up but to much you want them a little moist. If  the mix is to dry use another egg to add moisture.

See the video below for some help. The recipe is different, but you get the general idea. This video is not mine just shared from YouTube.
