MOORE'S NEW ENGLAND CODFISH CAKES
Try these with my baked bean recipe. The combination of sweet & salt is to die for. Complete the meal with steamed brown bread and cole slaw. (I'm thinking these might be a great appetizer by adding stiffly beaten egg whites, shaping into small balls & briefly deep frying. Stay tuned.)

- Cover the cod with cold water for 1 to 2 hours or until the cod can be torn. Change the water once or twice if the water gets excessively salty-taste. Note: DO NOT over freshen. I think salt cod must be less salty than in days of yore.
- Pare the potatoes but leave whole.
- Place the potatoes & cod in a saucepan just large enough to hold tearing the cod into pieces to fit if necessary. Cover & simmer slowly until the potatoes are tender.
- Drain & separate the cod & potatoes.
- Rice or mash the potatoes.
- Place the cod in the center of a clean kitchen towel. Roll up, & shred the cod by rubbing the cod with your fingers through the towel. (This method allows you to feel any bones that might be lurking in the fish.).
- Mix together the cod & potatoes then mix in the egg & pepper mixture. Taste for salt, add salt if the cod was "over-freshened". Can be refrigerated at this point.
- Shape the mixture into cakes about 2" in diameter & about ½" thick.
- Fry in bacon fat or butter, in a heavy skillet, over medium heat until golden on each side-about 2 or 3 minutes a side.

- Season fillets well with salt and pepper. Place on the rack of a steamer over boiling water. Cover and steam for 5 minutes. Remove rack and fish and let fillets cool.

- Drain potatoes well and mash them coarsely.
- When fish is cool enough to handle, flake it with a fork.
- Place potatoes in a mixing bowl. Add egg, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and grated onion. Blend very well and add fish, folding it in lightly without overmixing. Put mixture in a baking dish and chill in refrigerator.
- When mixture is thoroughly cool, shape it into 12 hamburger-size patties. Put flour in a shallow dish and dredge fish cakes in it. Shake off excess flour.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet. Fry patties for about 2 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately. Use remaining 2 tablespoons oil if necessary. Serve with tartar sauce (see recipe).

- If using salt cod: Soak salt cod in a large volume of water in the refrigerator for 12 - 24 hours. Change water several times. Place fillet into a 3 -4 quart sauce pan with a large volume of water, bring to a boil and turn heat down so that liquid is simmering. Cook for 10 minutes, remove from heat and leave in water for 10 - 15 minutes. Rinse under cold water and break into flakes.
- Boil potatoes in salted water until done, drain and return to pan over moderate heat for 2-3 minutes to evaporate excess moisture. Mash as for mashed potatoes and keep warm. Saute onions or scallions in a small amount of butter until soft.
- Mix fish, potatoes, butter and onions to- gether using a fork, then mix in eggs, mus- tard, pepper and herbs, if using.
- Form the mixture into cakes and refrigerate for up to 6 hours if not cooking immediately.
- Heat enough butter to coat a frying pan, preferably non stick, and cook over medium heat until each side is well browned and the cakes are heated through.
- Serve immediately with slices of lemon, tarter sauce or mayonnaise mixed with lemon juice and capers. Smaller cakes can be served as a first course, while larger cakes, served with salad and bread, make a great lunch or light dinner.

Top Asked Questions
What does Cod and potato cake taste like?Modern cod and potato cakes are still economical—a mere pound of fish can be stretched with potatoes to serve four people. That said, the cakes should still taste more like fish than potato. Exemplary versions are also moist and delicate on the inside but not so fragile that they fall apart easily during shaping, frying, or eating.
What is a good substitute for cod in fish cakes?With its meaty white flesh, cod has long been New Englanders’ primary choice for making fish cakes. But cod has lots of cousins, among them hake, haddock, and pollock, so consider branching out. All have a mild flavor and a medium-firm, flaky texture and are therefore fine substitutes for cod.
What is Cape Cod fish?Cod, fresh or salted, has historically been the most popular fish in New England, lending its name to Cape Cod, hanging in holy wooden form over the Massachusetts House of Representatives, and prompting food historian Clementine Paddleford to give it special mention in How America Eats, her 1960 ode to regional cooking.
What kind of fish do you use for fish cakes?A cousin to codfish balls, which are deep-fried, fish cakes are patted out and fry up wonderfully in the pan—easier to prepare and a bit healthier, too. We’ve substituted the more-sustainable hake for the traditional cod, but any firm white fish will work.
