Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Soak cod overnight.
  2. The next day pour off old water and add new enough to cover the fish.

  4. Taste a small sample of the fish, if it is still too salty change the water and boil again.
  5. Meanwhile cook the potatoes until tender.
  6. Mash the cod and the potatoes together.
  7. Add the eggs, parsley, onion, and pepper mix this well.
  8. Shape into balls and flatten out to the shape of a patty.
  9. Fry them in oil until golden brown all over.
  10. Drain on paper towels.

Notes Edit

If the mix is to moist use a little flour to dry the mixture but not to much as you want them a little moist. If the mix is to dry use another egg to add moisture.
