  • 1/2cup loosely packed roughly chopped parsley
  • 1 1/2pounds skinless cod fillets, cut into chunks
  • 1 egg

Instructions
Cod Cakes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Mix breadcrumbs and milk together in a small bowl.
  3. In a food processor, process parsley until finely chopped. Dump parsley out into a large mixing bowl. Then add half of cod chunks to the food processor. Grind until the fish reaches a texture like chopped meat. Dump into the mixing bowl with the parsley. Repeat with remaining cod. Add the breadcrumbs with milk, egg, lemon zest, garlic powder, oregano, and salt and pepper to the bowl. Mix everything together.
  4. Place a small bowl of cold water on the counter. Use your hands to form 12 balls that are about 2 inches in diameter. Dip your hands in the water between each ball to keep fish from sticking. Place balls on baking sheet and press down lightly to flatten into patties. Bake for 15 minutes. (You can cut open the largest one to check it’s cooked through, or check for internal temperature of 145 degrees.)
  5. Serve cod cakes hot with cold sauce and lemon wedges.
Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
  1. While the cod cakes are baking, make the sauce. (You’ll need to wash out your food processor first unless you have more than 1 bowl for it.) Add all sauce ingredients to food processor and process until sauce is smooth. Season to taste.
