Exclamation ISO a TNT Cod Fish Cake Recipe

Please share your favorite TNT recipe for cod fish cakes.

Mom used to make them when I was a kid. She used a box (that was the same size and shape of a box of pudding/jello mix) dry/flaked cod (looked like saw dust) which is no longed available. I really want to make cod fish cakes for Good Friday. I have never made them before. So I am seeking your advice.

Lots of questions:

Cod fillets or cod steak? Does it make a difference?

Do you use mashed potatoes?

Do you poach the cod in milk or water (seasoned or not seasoned) then drain, flake/mash and add to the mashed potatoes?
Or do you cook the cod with the potatoes then drain and mash together?

Do you dredge the cod cakes in egg/flour or egg/bread crumbs (or no egg just flour or crumbs) before frying?

Do you refrigerate or freeze cakes before frying for ease in flipping them?

Thank you so much in advance.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

I've never made them so can be of no help.

I'll be interested to see if anybody posts any ideas since I just bought a huge bag of Pacific cod loins the other day at Sam's.

it's a question of what one recalls - ye'olde comfort food thing.

they can be made in lumpy fashion or with a food processor 'blenderized' into an almost paste consistency - like fish/chicken croquettes.

it's the same with fishsticks - you have to read the packaging - some are ground up fish extruded into long sticks - others are cut from filets. and it's not the brand per se - (I think it was) Gordons has both.

Peep, did you ever make your codfish cakes?

I can't find the recipe I used the last time I made them, but I'm pretty sure I bought dried salt cod for them.

I did make them. But used fresh cod. It was a pain to fry them. DD said she liked the flavor but not to make them again. LOL If I do make them again I will use dried salt cod (bacalao).
