The Daring Cooks’ February 2012 challenge was hosted by Audax & Lis and they chose to present Patties for their ease of construction, ingredients and deliciousness! We were given several recipes, and learned the different types of binders and cooking methods to produce our own tasty patties!
2 lb salt cod
1 lb potatoes
1 stalk celery, finey diced
1 small onion, finely diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Soak salt cod in cold water for 48 hours and change the water a couple of times. Boil the peeled potatoes in water until tender. Gently mash potatoes. Cool.
Drain salt cod and rip into pieces. Boil in water for 5 minutes. Drain. Shred and chop the cod into small pieces.
Saute celery and onion in olive oil until tender.
Mash the potatoes, add celery and onion and shredded cod. Do not overwork. Form into cakes. Fry in hot oil. Serve with chow chow. The cakes can be frozen after forming into patties and cooked later.
