Why I Love This Recipe

My grandfather's sister used to make these for us - my mom has her own recipe too, but I have yet to get it out of her :)

They are not fishy at all, just really good

Ingredients You'll Need

2 c rock cod cut into small pieces
2 eggs
1/4 c water
3T sugar
3T cornstarch
4T flour
1t salt
1t soy sauce
canola oil for frying


put fish, eggs, and water into food processor, pulse until forms paste like consistency (if you don't have a food processor, like me, you can also use a stick blender, it just takes longer)

remove mixture and put into mixing bowl

add sugar, cornstarch, and flour, mixing well

add salt and soy sauce

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper

Wet hands and form small patties about 3” wide and ¼ “ tall

Deep fry patties in 350 degree oil until golden brown

Let drain well - I like to use a cooling rack over a cookie sheet
