Eric Haynes’ Cod Cakes
Heat oven 350. Sprinkle half the salt on cod fillets, place on a lightly greased pan and cook for 20 minutes, remove and cool slightly, drain any liquid and refrigerate until well chilled. This will help keep the fish flaky.
Chop bread crumbs with a knife but leave fairly coarse; use a food processor if you have one. Sauté the onions, celery, red and green bell peppers in a small amount of oil or clarified butter until slightly soft. Drain and cool.
In a bowl large enough for mixing, combine the cod fillet (do not break up first) bread crumbs, sautéed vegetables, parsley, eggs, heavy cream, lemon juice, Tabasco, salt, black pepper and mix well but still flaky. Cod is a very lean fish and the cream acts as a binder for the ingredients.
Form into eight 4-ounce balls and let set up for 10 minutes. In a sauté or fry pan, heat a small amount of cooking oil or clarified butter over medium heat, flatten and mold each ball into cake and gently place in the hot oil. Cook 3 to 4 minutes; turn gently and cook 3 to 4 more minutes until golden brown. The cakes firm up as they cook. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Serve with corn relish or tartar sauce.
Mixture will keep for several days refrigerated.
