      I got some nice, thick salt cod fillets for this recipe and we all liked it very much. I would have liked a wee bit more flavour and think that a minced onion and a bit of garlic would be good additions. I do like the texture of salt cod so much better than regular cod, and we have it often, so we'll be making these again. Definitely a better fish finger for the kids.

      EXCELLENT recipe... salt cod has a much better flavour than many usual white fish varieties and this recipe makes the most of that wonderful flavour. We liked this so much that I made a small salad and DH and I just had these with it for dinner... and enjoyed every second of it too. I used Tabasco for the hot sauce and found my parsley was in very sad state indeed, so used coriander / cilantro instead, for the rest I folled the recipe exactly. Please see my rating system: 5 stars for a recipe that has already been enthusiastically requested again by DH and I will be making it often in the future because it is simply devine. Thanks!
