    Where does the onion come in on this recipe? or is it optional?

    Dear Ronda: The addition of onion is optional but if you are going to add it, I would suggest slightly sauteeing it in EVOO and add it to the mashed potato mixture. Do not use more than 1/2 teaspoon of onion per potato. I hope you enjoy it!

    Hi from Hamburg, Germany

    next weekend we will have a locavore dinner and the fishmonger today told me the only locally caught fish here is Cod from the Baltic. So your codcake recipe will be combined with baby leaves from an urban farm here for the appetizer. Well there is also eel from Elbe river and the harbor but I cannot handle eel. No way. yuk!

    Dear Barbara. What a delight to hear that you are trying this recipe. I think you should reconsider trying the eel. You should try some smoked eel. Eel is delicious when smoked. It tastes like roasted pork! Let me know how it goes. All our best from the fishing village of Greenport!
