These Cod Fish Cakes are simple to make and delicious. The taste of parmesan and potatoes comes through nicely. The outside is crisp while the inside is soft. These freeze well and you could easily make a batch and freeze them cooked or not. The whole family enjoyed this dish and it'll become a go-to recipe for many meals to come.
I found this over at Simply Recipes where she started the site to document her families recipes. She won the 2006 Food Blog Awards which is no surprise once you see her photography, writing and make a few of her dishes. Just today she posted Sea Scallops with Asaparagus Sauce - wow!
