Fish Cakes

I know most of us are busy preparing for Thanksgiving this Thursday, so I thought a quick recipe is in order! These fish cakes are quick and delicious, you can easily prepare them for your family before the big holiday. Or any other day of course. These ended up being one of my favorite recipes this year. I am accompanying a recipe for a remoulade that I keep in my records at all times, it’s crazy delicious, and goes extremely well with these fish cakes.


What you’ll need:

  • 1 pound of Cod filet
  • 2 -3 medium potatoes
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • canola oil

Boil and mash the potatoes, set aside. Boil the cod until it flakes easily. Drain and flake the fish with a fork. Remove all bones. Add to the potatoes and mix gently.

Combine all remaining ingredients expect the yellow cornmeal. Mix with your hands and for into cakes. Coat on all sides with yellow cornmeal, and pan fry them in a skillet coated with oil. Nicely brown on one side, then flip them over and continue to cook until well browned on the other side.


Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
