    Molly53's Note:

    Dried salt codfish is a traditional ingredient not only in Northern European cuisine, but also in Mediterranean, West African, Caribbean, and Brazilian cuisines. The ingredient and the dishes made from it are known by many names, for example baccalà, bacalhau, bacalao, bacallà, morue, klippfisk/clipfish, and saltfiskur. Serve these tasty morsels with tomato sauce. Small balls make a very nice appetizer, too. From the New England chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947. Overnight soaking time not included in preparation time.

      Hi!! These are great I make them myself, I just love codfish! ( I'm Portuguese), Try adding some chopped parsely and really finally chopped onion into your cakes, you will get even a better flavour out of them.
