Remembering My Sister’s Cod Fish Cakes
As a young teenager I can remember when my sister prepared a dish for me, it tasted so good I longed for the taste often. I can remember when she would be happy in the kitchen preparing her specialty “Cod Fish Cakes.” When I would eat them, I can remember how the flavor of them would stick to my tongue. Unfortunately, after a few years of her preparing them for my siblings and I she passed away, so I was unable to taste her cod fish cakes anymore.
As years went by, I would often reminisce on how she would make these cakes in the kitchen while I would watch sometimes although playing around in the kitchen with her just being a young man enjoying our younger years was more like it. After thinking about all the ingredients, she used I decided to give it a try myself. As I think about this now this is probably where my love for cooking all began. To prepare these cod fish cakes, you need Cod Fish, potatoes, onions, green peppers, eggs, and crush peppers. You first boil the cod fish a few times along with the potatoes, then you combine all the other ingredients along with the cod fish and the potatoes in a bowl, adding different spices to satisfy your tastebuds. You then mix it all up very well, then make patties or little cakes out of the mixture. You then batter them in all-purpose flour and fry them.
Although this seems like a simple recipe like my sister, I had to learn how to feel the texture of these ingredients in order to get them to stick together in a patty or cake like shape, it can be tedious. Hopefully someone would be brave enough to try it and let me know how you like it.
