Ingredients

  • 8 ounces skinless, boneless salt cod
  • 3 tablespoons butter 
  • 4 cloves garlic, 2 minced and 2 mashed 
  • 1 medium white onion, minced 
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup hot milk 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs 
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Directions

Place the cod in cold water to cover for 2 to 3 days. Keep refrigerated and change the water at least 4 times a day to rehydrate and rinse out most of the salt.

Drain the cod and place in a large pot and cover with 2 inches of water. Cook until flakey, about 30 minutes. Drain and cool the cod completely.

Melt the butter in a large pan set over medium heat. Add the garlic and onions, and saute until soft. Add the flour and stir for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in the hot milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly. Add the pepper, then add the parsley and cod, and mix until combined. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature.

Using your hands, form 2 tablespoons of the mixture into a small cylinder. Repeat for the remaining mixture to make about 20 croquettes.

Beat the eggs and place in a shallow bowl. Place the breadcrumbs on a separate plate. One at a time, dip the croquettes in the beaten eggs and then roll in the breadcrumbs.

In a deep-sided frying pan set over medium-high heat, add enough oil to fill the pan 2 to 3 inches high. Fry the croquettes in batches until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Place on paper towels to drain excess grease, and then serve hot.
