Cod Cakes and Sauce

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

2 large potatoes, peeled and halved
1 lb cod fillets, cubed
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp grated onion
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 egg
3 tbsp oil for frying

  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot of water, bring the water to a boil. Let the potatoes cook until they are almost tender.
  2. 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.
  3. Add butter, onion, parsley, and egg to the bowl; mash the mixture together. Mold the mixture into patties.
  4. 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.
