Cod is one of the most popular ingredients during Lent. There are many ways to prepare it and they are all delicious. Today I share with you my recipe for quinoa and cod croquettes, one that I adapted carefully because my daughter is allergic to eggs. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 6 cups of water
  • 2 chunks (8 ozs each) of salted cod, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/2 cup of quinoa, cooked
  • 1/2 cup of onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup of chives, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup of fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Frying oil, about 4 cups depending on the size of the pot. The croquettes should be entirely submerged when frying.

Directions

  • 1
    Place the potatoes in a medium pot over medium heat with water. Cook for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
  • 2
    Remove the potatoes from water and mash with the help of a masher or fork until there are no big pieces left. Set aside.
  • 3
    Place the cod, quinoa, onion, green onion, parsley, nutmeg, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and mix them. Add the mashed potatoes and mix well until everything is combined evenly. Form the croquettes in a cylindrical shape with your hands, about 2 1/2 inches long.
  • 4
    Place the oil in a deep pot over medium-high heat. Heat the oil until it reaches a temperature of 370°F.
  • 5
    Fry the croquettes 4 at a time until they're golden brown on all sides. Remove from the oil carefully and place them over paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  • 6
    Serve hot.

  • To cook the cod, all you have to do is boil it in water for approximately 15 minutes. Because it's salted cod, you won't need to add anymore salt.
  • When you crumble the cod, you should do it carefully so you get rid of all the bones.
