My Salt Cod Fish Cakes

December 30, 2015

This is a true taste of Shetland! Plus, it is as simple and tasty as it gets!


There are only two ingredients - fish and potatoes. All you need is boiled salt cod or salt pollock (piltock, as we call them) and boiled potatoes - fresh or left over.

You need roughly the same amount of fish to potato.

Soak the fish for 24 hours. Boil for 20 minutes or so.

It is important to let the fish and potatoes dry before mixing.

Break the fish and potatoes in to a bowl, grind in black pepper, mix and form fishcakes. Dust in flour.

Fry on both sides on a medium heat until golden brown in as much butter as you dare!

Enjoy!
