Cod and Potato Croquettes

"This is a great appetizer for party functions. Or to just have in the fridge for brunch. You can prepare the Cod and Potatoes ahead to save time, by soaking Cod in water and boiling your potatoes. That's what I do. The Cod I use is bagged, and salted. Should be available in your super market next to the frozen or fresh fish section."

  • after soaking cod overnight, change water.
  • place cod in pot with enough water to cover it and boil cod for 15-20 minutes.
  • remove from stove top, drain, let it cool and flake.
  • peel and boil the potatoes in pot with a bit of salt, drain potatoes, and mash.
  • let potatoes cool (I stick them in the freezer for quick cooling).
  • place potatoes, cod, parsley, eggs, onions, nutmeg, garlic powder, pepper in a bowl and mix together.
  • now add the wine or broth until you get a nice mashed potato consistency.
  • taste for salt and add if needed.
  • heat oil in deep fryer or a wok until very hot.
  • reduce heat to medium, high.
  • grab mixture with a tablespoon, with an other tablespoon grab same mixture working with tablespoons from back to front, until you get an oval shape patty.
  • drop it into very hot oil.
  • and fry until golden brown, turning patty to brown on both sides.
  • remove from oil and place on paper towel to drain.
  • Note: do NOT place more then 6 patty's into oil so not to cause oil to over flow.

    can you use fresh cod, because I can't get salted cod where I am, do you still boil the cod or prepare it a different way. Also how many croquettes does this receipt make. Thanks in advance for your help. Donna
