I was born in Newfoundland and although I left there over 25 years ago I still long for the salt sea air and some of my best memories are my mom's fish cakes. They are so delicious!!! Made these today for the weekend! Freezes well. * my pic

    * The day before you plan top make the cakes put the dry salt cod in a pot and cover with cold water.Let sit over night changing the water at least once more.Do not drain til ready to use. * The next day peel and cut the potatoes into chunks. You will want to have a little more fish than potatoes. * Cook for approx 10 mins then add drained fish. Cook for another 15 mins or so until fish and potatoes are well cooked. Drain and let cool. * Wen the potatoes and fish has cooled mash together till well mixed, add the chopped onion, pepper and enough flour to hold the mixture together. * Take a tablespoon of the mixture , roll into balls and then flatten with your hand. Dip both sides in to flour and fry over medium heat until golden brown. Be sure to do both sides. * Serve with a dill sauce. Also great on a hamburger bun with dill sauce and lettuce.
