Cod fish cakes make a delicious and less expensive alternative to similar seafood dishes such as crab cakes. Good cod fish cakes require soaking the fish overnight in milk to tenderize and add flavor, followed by a quick boil to soften the fish. Adjust the ingredients and spices to suit your personal taste, as the recipe for cod fish cakes is a guideline on which to explore your culinary creativity.

Soak the cod fillets overnight in a bowl of milk, refrigerated.

Boil the fillets in the milk for three minutes to soften. Allow to cool.

Crumble the cod into a mixing bowl and add all other ingredients except the bread crumbs and frying oil.

Mix thoroughly and pat into four cakes.

Coat the cakes with the bread crumbs.

Add oil to a frying pan and preheat at medium-high heat.

Fry the cakes until golden brown, about four minutes per side, flipping once with a spatula. Serve immediately.
