Notes

I was raised by my granny who made this every Saturday, then found it 40 years later as a side dish in Greece, many countries claim the originality of this recipe.

Hartelijke groeten uit California Michel! You are correct Michel that many countries claim fish cakes as their own, including Bermuda where we had codfish cakes, but each country's recipe is a bit different. In the mid fifties living in Surinam, salted codfish was survival food, but now it is a bit expensive.
