  • Summary

    Grandpa's Portuguese Codfish Balls require a bit of preparation ahead of time, but the cooking itself is fast. What is most amazing about it is the fact that even though the codfish balls are deep fried, they are light on the tongue.

    Ingredients

    • 4 cups of mashed potatoes (potatoes only, no added milk or butter), chilled
    • 2 lbs. of cod filet
    • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
    • 1/2 cup of minced onion
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • a dusting of flour to roll balls in
    • oil for deep frying (I prefer a mix of olive oil and canola, although my grandfather's recipe does call for corn oil)
