4 fish cakes


  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and halved

  • 1 pound cod fillets, cubed

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 tablespoon grated onion

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

  • 3 tablespoons oil for frying


  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until almost tender, about 15 minutes. Add cod and continue to cook until cod and potatoes are both soft, about 5 more minutes.

  2. Drain well and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add egg, butter, onion, and parsley; mash until well combined, then form into four patties.

  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels before serving.


You can substitute salmon for cod if you would rather make salmon cakes.
