We’ve been making all kinds of fish and shellfish cakes at the market for years! We’ve offered recipes for crab cakes, Thai fish cakes, salmon cakes, Maine shrimp cakes, tortillitas de Camerones, but never have we shared our good old-fashioned cod cake recipe.
Whether you’re making crab, shrimp or fish cakes, the best ones always showcase the main ingredient, with minimal filler. Just as a great crab cake is made up of mostly crab, and sometimes barely holds together as a cake, a fine cod cake should have nice flakes of fish throughout.
Today’s recipe I think works best with the firm flake of codfish but I’ve used haddock and the less expensive fish from the cod family, pollack. These cakes also are great with almost any leftover fish.
