How to make Codfish Cakes

  • In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and add chopped onions, ½ teaspoon of salt and 1/8 tsp of pepper.
  • Stir the onions in salt and pepper for 5 minutes or until they are translucent in color. When done, remove the onions from the skillet and set aside.
  • Cut the cod into large chunks, and add the chunks in a food processor. Pulse it until the fish is coarsely chopped.
  • In a medium sized bowl, add chopped cod, fried onions, tarragon, Tabasco, and egg. Sprinkle the remaining salt and pepper on top and mix until everything is well combined.
  • Using slightly wet hands, make 3-inches thick patties.
  • In a bowl, pour breadcrumbs and dip a patty in it until it is properly coated. Repeat the process with all patties. Shake off excess breadcrumbs and set aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive in a skillet.
  • Place as many patties as the skillet can accommodate at once, and cook both sides on low flame for 4-5 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Repeat the process until all the patties are cooked.
  • Transfer the cods to a serving dish and squeeze lemon over them directly.
  • Serve straight away with your favorite vegetables or a tartar sauce.
