I made some cod cakes for Christmas Eve and used a sauce from a different fish cake recipe. It was a hit with the family, particularly since the cod cakes had no bread inside. Here are the recipes.
The Cod Fish Cakes are from a user named DRAGON11 at Allrecipes.com.
2 large potatoes, peeled and halved
1 lb cod fillets, cubed
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp grated onion
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
3 tbsp oil for frying
- Place the potatoes in a large pot of water, bring the water to a boil. Let the potatoes cook until they are almost tender.
- Add the fish to the pot and let the fish and potatoes cook until they are both soft. Drain well and transfer the potatoes and fish to a large mixing bowl.
- Add butter, onion, parsley, and egg to the bowl; mash the mixture together. Mold the mixture into patties.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Fry the patties on both sides until golden brown. Drain on paper towels before serving.
The sauce is a Dijon Tartar Sauce from a user named chia2160 at Food.com. Mix the following ingredients together and refrigerate.
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 tbsp chopped onions
3 tbsp pickle relish
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
I used a homemade green tomato relish and homemade country Dijon mustard.
