Summer is coming, and when I look back on last year holidays, I can’t stop dreaming about my first solo holidays with my sister: three days in Barcelona. We loved everything, especially the huge market La Boqueria. We tried everything, from smoothies to chorizo pizza, to fresh fruit salads. We loved the buzz, the joy, the kindness of people working there.
As I had some leftover dried cod, Claudia asked me to make some cod and potato cakes, like the ones we ate in Barcelona as tapas.
- dried cod previously soaked, 200 gr
- potatoes, 300 gr
- egg, 1
- breadcrumbs, 2 – 3 tablespoons
- garlic, 1/2 clove
- chopped parsley
- frying oil
They are easy making fish cakes.
Boil the cod in hot unsalted water until tender.
Peel and chop potatoes and boil them in salted water ’till tender.
Mash potatoes with a fork and add the codd, previously reduced in small pieces.
Mix all together and add one whisked egg.
Add 2 – 3 tablespoons of breadcrumbs according to necessity, then add parsley and garlic, finely chopped.
Make little round cakes with your hands, using some breadcrumbs to help you.
Heat frying oil in a large pan and fry just a few cakes per time, until they are golden on each side. Serve them hot.
In the meanwhile, help yourself with my tapas!
