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.

I'm from Newfoundland and wanted to take cod cakes to a pot luck, and these were perfect. The only change I made was to use salt cod, soaked, which is more traditional in my family. Thanks for posting!

I'm impressed with the crisp coating and how they fry up without sticking--even when using minimal oil for the "skinny" version. This recipe has a perfect balance among the ingredients. Quick, easy, and very tasty.

Fail for me. It was a soupy mess. I suggest adding one egg and half the butter and see what that gets you. Also, don't mash the potato fully (like mashed potatoes) instead leave some chucks. I had to add bread crumbs to the mix to dry it out. In the end, it was turned out/tasted like/felt like fish mashed potatoes.

I cook sometimes to give my wife a break. My finicky family loved it. I cut back on the parsley, added celery, used plain crumbs but added creole seasoning. Served with baked beans, cole slaw, & baguette of bread. I was asked to make it again. That's the highest compliment.

salt cod cakes are great. if you can get Newfoundland savory they are even better than with parsley.
