I added the ingredients listed, but I also added green onions and lemon juice, oh I voided they parmesan cheese. Allowed mixture to set over night, baked instead of frying. Served with a side salad. Amazing recipe
How long did you bake them for.
I used frozen haddock steaks and garlic powder. I also used 2 eggs and 3/4 bread crumbs. There were delicious and a hit. Will definitely make again.
Great for all the family
Made it tonight according to recipe, used tail pieces of fresh Cod leftover from another dish I made the other night. Like eating a potato pancake. Really couldn’t taste the fish. If I make it again I’ll leave out the potatoes and just use bread crumbs. Not bad, just not what I was expecting.
Can these cakes be frozen and then reheated?
Hi Pat, I don’t see why not. I haven’t tried it though, so if you do try freezing and reheating them, please let us know how that goes for you.
I had made them before and when I froze them I just put parchment paper between each cake and then thawed before I fried. Was perfect! Great recipe!
I have frozen, but do not fry! Freeze before frying. Thaw and fry then.
Dynamite. My first try at cod fish cakes. Followed the recipe but at the last minute decided to use Italian bread crumbs. Even my wife liked them.
Delicious. Did not have potatoes, so I used cooked cauliflower from night before, a bit concerned, but WOW!!! It worked and was delicious (repeat)
Good substitution, Roxann!
Simmer fish in milk?
Hi Vicki, for this recipe that uses fresh cod, you don’t need to simmer in milk. If you were making cod fish cakes with salt cod, or cod that has been heavily salted and dried, you would need to first soak the salt cod in water to extract some of the salt. You can also simmer salt cod it in milk. But that’s not this recipe.
This is good recipe on the idea of cod fish cakes. But cod fish cakes are made with salt cod. They are made with the leftovers from a good meal of salt cod. Using fresh cod to make codfish cakes is practically sinful.
Let the Cod Fish Set over Night in Seasoning SALT of your Choice, and there you have your Aged COD Fish Left over! Ha ha…
Do you think canned white tuna would substitute for the cod?
We have a tuna patties recipe that’s great! I’d recommend using that recipe if you have canned tuna, rather than subbing it in this recipe.
And check out our 15 Great Meals to Make with Canned Tuna, if you are low on cod (or anything else).
made them for dinner tonight. So delish!! my husband who is not a fish eater love the cakes too.
A nice addition is finely diced sauteed onion and celery. Adds a nice texture and taste to the cakes.
Outstanding! I used leftover Cod oven baked. Reminds me of fish cakes of my youth. Too much to fry all at once, (old widower living alone with 2 cats) but making patties and freezing them for another time.Bravo for a great recipe!
Old widow here with two dogs
These are so good Perfect as written. Thank you for the recipe.
A family favorite for leftover fish. Thanks Elise!
This was a fun recipe to use up leftover cod fillets from another night’s dinber. I’m creative with my breadcrumbs: I used 2/3 cup dried & baked chickpeas and 1/3 cup gold fish crackers. I also used the suggestion or recommendations to use mashed potatoes, plus 1/2 T. Old Bay Spice & 2 T veggie oil. It a delicious patty! Thanks!
I made your recipe with filleted bluegills and was applauded by family and friends. Thanks for sharing your expertise!
