We’ve been slacking in the fish department lately…. Not sure if we just got burned out or just needed new recipes….. But when Peter brought home and cooked up an awesome piece of cod for our New Year’s Eve dinner we knew we’d need to be doing something with cod again, soon, very soon.
So I set about gathering an idea and a grocery list.
A take off of Grandma’s salmon patties and our crab cakes and all together different, too.
Spicy Sriracha Mayonnaise Dipping Sauce
1/4 c mayo
1 TBS or more of Sriracha sauce
Stir it up and enjoy. Add more mayo or zip per your taste. Personally I am planning on eating this whole loaf of bread schmeared with this spicy goodness. You can have the butter. That’s fine. I’l take care of this……
One sweet potato and one Idaho potato sliced into 1/4″ *fries*
A mandolin works wonders for this.
Toss in olive oil, spread on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with your choice of seasonings. I chose Penzey’s Southwest Seasoning. Bake at 425° for 20-25 minutes or until browned.
Start with one and a half pounds of fresh cod, salt, peppered and sprinkled with the juice of one lemon. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes, cool, then break up.
Mince 1 shallot, 1/2 onion, 1/2 jalapeno pepper, 1 stalk of celery, diced, 3 T red bell pepper, 3 T fresh parsley, 1 T fresh dill. Saute up, just a bit, in a dab of butter and some olive oil. Let cool, then mix the vegetables and the fish with 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs, a dash of Worcestershire sauce and a triple dash of hot sauce, juice from 1/2 lemon, zest from 1/2 lemon, 3T mayo and 1 T dijon mustard and 1 egg (which we did not use this time, but will the next, as in our crab cakes, for a tad more body). Form into small patties, coat in Panko breadcrumbs and pan fry in olive oil until brown. Serve with the aforementioned spicy mayo sauce and enjoy. Though the sauce was so totally not needed and to hear that from me? being a saucy sort of girl? That’s huge. That’s how good these are……..
Makes 10-12, serves 4.
Thanks to Christine for sharing the idea. I just wish I’d seen her new and improved recipe before I set about creating… Doesn’t matter. Between her idea and our tweaks it was superb! Will repeat! Oh yeah.
Oh and let us not forget the inventory reduction fresh garlic, cayenne, sauteed, green onion sprinkled Brussel Sprouts. Even Peter may decide to take these up, which would be a total pisser because then we would have to share…. I’m not good at sharing. Brussel Sprouts, anyway…… Just ask my siblings.
