    Sue Lau's Note:

    The light, slightly crispy fish cakes can be a welcome change to any Caribbean meal. Use the accompaning curry aioli (lots of garlic flavor there!) with it or use your favorite tartar sauce. Note: if using salt cod, you will have to soak that for several days in water, changing out the water about every 6 hours until the saltiness goes away (refrigerated). Then you will need to remove any bones, skin and cartilage if they are present, before boiling and flaking your fish. Enjoy!

      Thank You! - Thank You! - Thank You!!! As a youngster in the Bronx in the 1950s my grandpa Corbin made dried codfish cakes which I loved, but haven't been able to duplicate until now! I don't think he used curry powder, but he did put in crushed red pepper - which is what I had on hand and used. They are perfect - just like I remember them! Thanks for the wonderful recipe! Fived Stars for the recipe and another Five for bringing back wonderful memories!!

      2 T. coriander seeds
      1 T. cumin seeds
      1 T. mustard seeds
      1 T. anise seeds
      1/2 T. fenugreek seeds
      1/2 T. allspice berries
      1/2 T. black peppercorns
