I made these for dinner last night… another Nana classic
NO I will not make you decipher, I will translate, but I do get a kick out of little old lady penmanship. It’s such a blast from the past and I’m not talking about my past, just THE PAST, as in the times before computers. Now none of us can scribble anything other than an illegible signature, but we can type circles around each other, now can’t we, I wonder how that will work out for us all.
But in the meantime, you should definitely make these for dinner, it went well with this and don’t forget a nice big slice of lemon on the side.
Potato Fish Fritters
1 lb cod (no skin or bones)
2 medium potatoes peeled, boiled and cut into 1/4 inch cubes
3 scallions thinly sliced
1/2 red pepper finely chopped
2 tsp old bay seasoning, 1/4 c chopped parsley, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 – 2 tbsp flour (to bind)
veg oil & butter for frying
Roughly cut the cod into small pieces (about 1/2 inch) put into a bowl with spring onions, potato, red pepper and all seasonings. Mix well. Sprinkle the flour over, add the egg mix and combine. Heat 2 tbsp oil with 1 tbsp butter in a non stick pan, over medium heat, add heaping spoonfuls to pan, shallow fry for about 3 mins each side until golden brown. Serve with lemon. Serves 4-6 (2-3 fritters per serving).
