Codfish Cakes and Bacon
From an old New England Cookbook
Living in Massachusetts where Codfish is "King", I have come to love this for breakfast, lunch or supper. Only make them with real hot mashed potatoes and salt codfish.
Serve with a little chili sauce or fresh lemon!
How to Make Codfish Cakes and Bacon
- Soak the codfish in cold water for several hours. Drain and cover with fresh cold water and simmer until fish is tender. Drain. Remove any bones and chop the codfish.
- Combine all the ingredients, excepting the bacon, and beat until light. Cover and let stand overnight,in the refrigerator.
- In the morning mold the cakes about 1/2 inch thick. Fry 2 strips of bacon for each person. Drain on unglazed paper in a warm place. Fry fish cakes in bacon fat and serve with the crisp bacon.
- Codfish cakes are also delicious served with a tomato cream sauce.
