Dad’s Fish Cakes

Chris is working the night shift these weeks so we don’t see each other that much and we don’t cook and eat together 😦 I don’t know why, but I rarely make a proper meal when I’m alone, so yesterday my parents decided to feed (properly a good ideas as I have been living of popcorn, meringue kisses and macarons the few days).

For a looooong time my dad has claimed that he makes the best fish cakes in the world, so last night wanted to prove it… and he was right!! It is without doubt the best fish cakes I have ever tasted (and I have tasted many many many variations of fish cake)! And I am not alone with that opinion… On my way home from my parents, I stopped at Chris’ work with dinner and he loved them too 🙂

Three things that make these fish cakes better than other fish cakes is: 1) the fish is chopped and not minced which gives a more fluffy and light texture, 2) bacon – everything with bacon tastes fabulous! and, 3) it contains spring onions instead of regular white onions, giving it a bit more fresh taste!

I hope that you’ll try this recipe so that my dad’s fish cake recipe can go all around the world 🙂

 

Ingredients (18 fish cakes)

2 pounds cod filet

6 tbsp. bread crumbs

2 eggs

4 large spring onions

15 slices bacon

5 tbsp. milk

Salt & pepper

 

Cut the fish into small cubes and chop it finely. Do the same with bacon and spring onions – but for God’s sake don’t blend it!! If you blend the fish toy will end up with heavy and sticky fish cakes instead of light and textured.

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Let rest in the fridge before dividing it into 18 equally sized pieces. Form each piece into a ball and press it flat – approximately 1/2-inch thick.

Fry in butter for about 4 minutes on each side. Let rest for a few minutes before served. These were served with cooked potatoes and white parsley sauce 🙂 Knuds Fish Cakes 2_Fotor_Collage Knuds Fish Cakes 13
