A dear "Newfie" friend used to make these for me and I love them. Cut back on the oil in the skillet for a skinny version. To be really authentic serve these cod cakes with baked beans. You may use left over mashed potatoes but they will produce a softer pattie. Just boil your potatoes and mash them with nothing added.

These cod cakes were just wonderful. I followed your recipe exactly and the cakes had a nice crisp coating. Very tender on the inside. I served with cole slaw and baked beans actually. Cheers to the Newfie's. Thanks Bergy.

Not sure what went wrong, but these were completely tasteless...and fell apart while cooking. I followed the recipe exactly written and they still were horrible. Everyone else seems to love this recipe, but I'm not happy with it at all.....yuck.
