  • Drain the cod and place it in a saucepan and just cover it with fresh water.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.
  • Drain, debone, and flake the cod.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the olive oil and bread crumbs.
  • Mix very well and then add the cod and the remaining ingredients, except the eggs.
  • Mix until well blended and then form into 6 patties, 1/2" by 3 1/2".
  • Pan fry in a little olive oil until golden brown on both sides.
  • Keep warm in the oven while you poach the eggs.
  • Serve each fish cake topped with a poached egg.
