This recipe came from my mom, who I think got it from a magazine. We both make these all the time, in fact almost every time I ask my mom "what are you having for dinner tonight", she says "cod fish cakes".
It's a very simple recipe, and really tasty any night of the week.
1/4 c bread crumbs
1 small onion diced
2 celery stalks chopped
2 tbsp mayo
1 tsp Tabasco sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 c oil
Boil cod for about 5 min in water. Saute onion and celery until soft. Combine cooked cod with sauteed celery and onion, mix in all other ingredients. Chill for 1 hour (this step is important, because it helps keep them together when cooking)
Fry in oil med/low for 5-7 min on each side.
I serve mine with a salad, or something else light.
