Watch Captain Sig Cook


2 pounds fresh cod fillets

1 egg

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

3 tablespoons potato starch

1/2 medium onion

2 cups half and half


If the crab is frozen, soak it in fresh cold water to thaw. Crack it open and remove the meat. Towel-dry the crabmeat.

Drain excess moisture from cod by leaving it in fridge on paper towels.

Use a food processor to chop the onion. Add the cod and blend, adding the half and half, then potato starch and egg. Add seasoning and blend into a thick paste.

Heat an inch and a half of oil in a deep skillet. Using a large spoon, drop meatball-size globs into the oil. Roll over as they brown. They will puff and try to float as they cook. Drain and serve or cool and reheat in a microwave. Serve as a snack or with boiled potatoes and carrots with brown gravy. Serves 8-10.
