Large mixing bowl
Large frying pan
1 lb/500g codfish filets, free of bones
2 medium potatoes
1 Tbsp butter
Butter for cooking the codfish
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs, pastured (read label on egg carton)

PREPARATION AND COOKING TIME
Prep time: 20-30 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes
Peel and chop potatoes and then cook in boiling water until well done.
Beat eggs together.
Using liberal amounts of butter, bake or fry codfish until cooked.
Mash the potatoes.
Let fish and potatoes cool.
Using a large mixing bowl, combine the codfish, potatoes, butter, Parmesan cheese and two beaten eggs thoroughly.
To create patties (fish cakes), roll small handfuls of the mixture between your hands, forming patties that are about 1 ½ to 2 inches in diameter.
Sauté the codfish cakes by melting butter in a large frying pan
and gently fry them until golden brown.
SOME TIPS AND COMMENTS
If frozen, thaw fish in advance in the fridge, or, if you are in a rush, defrost them on a plate on the kitchen counter.
Serve with homemade mayonnaise
