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.

Step-by-Step

  1. * 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.
