Cod Cakes: Meatless Mondays
Cod Cakes (balls) are another Portuguese staple. We fry these up for events and parties because they are a perfect appetizer. In Portugal these salty cod cakes are usually eaten with a nice cold beer.
My kids love these and will eat endless cod cakes at our family gatherings. Perfect option for another meatless Monday school lunch with a side salad or simple rice.
