people would give up their spouses steak HAHA for a feed of em . Needles to say they are sought after ! They are Home made fishcakes , salt fishcakes that is!
Salt and dried fish is soaked and rinsed repeatedly in cold water over night , to both plump up the fish and soak out the salt , it is then boiled as well as potatoes , fried diced onions till brown in rendered pork fat from tiny cubes of it called srunchins (they scrunch when chewed if outside fatback is left on and are salty.I remove this part for these) all this then fried in the pork fat (just little at a time) which I only use 1/3 and added veggie oil for the old ticker (Although My Grandparents and so on have been rared on foods like this and all lived late into their 80 and 90s so ?????
.I mix it all together, prepare little patties like hamburgers and ,,,,,,,, and fry for hours LOLas you can tell they splatter alot , my poor stove , but it was worth the extra cleaning job !!,I use more fish than some people and more softer scrunchins , onions etc I do not want a potatoe cake LOL they are Fish cakes.;-), (they are SOME shockin good me duckies , tell ya mudder ..... , LOL just a little local talk HAHA)Oh and they are not over salty , dried salt fish may give you that impression but if prepared and cooked properly and to desired taste , no problem.
I am hoping to make a giant roaster full of cabbage rolls this weekend (Oh Diane I wish you were closer , :-) we could roll and chat and you could give me all your secrets of cooking ), depends on the cabbage I can get , I freeze some of these for Christmas as well , they are time consuming and it is easier to do it that way . SOOOOOOOOOOOo is there any thing you cook especially for Christmas not the "DINNER" just for a little treat throughout the week ???????
HHHHmmm I am hungry now , I must go feed the beast that lives within my TUMMY!!!!
Have a good one .:-)
