How to make it

  • Put the salt cod in a large bowl and cover with cold water.
  • Leave the bowl on the counter for 4 hours, draining and covering with cold fresh cold water 3-4 times.
  • After 4 hours cook the potatoes till tender.
  • Cook the onion till tender and opaque, they cook more in the fish cakes.
  • When the potatoes are done drain and mash.
  • In a large bowl add fish,potatoes, onion and eggs.
  • Mix all together.
  • Let cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Shape into desired patty shape.
  • Dredge in flour and fresh pepper shaking off excess.
  • In a large skillet add bacon grease on medium high heat.
  • When the bacon grease is melted and hot add the fish cakes.
  • Turn over when they get crispy brown( about 4-6 min.)
  • Then fry for another 4-6 min.
  • NOTES:
  • When I make them they are about 4 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick.
  • The bacon grease should be very hot so the fish cakes get a good sear on both sides.
  • I put 6 servings but it depends how big or small the patties are.
  • We eat them with green tomatoe chow chow and home made brown beans.
