July 19 – 23, White Point will bring our flavours to the Tall Ships Taste of Nova Soctia Food Fare by the Sea in Halifax. On July 19th, CTV Morning Live welcomed Executive Chef Alan to do a ‘show & tell’ about our signature dish we have on the menu – Salt Fish Cakes with Lemon Garlic Mayo.
You can make them at home now too…here is his recipe!
Salt Fish Cakes with Lemon Garlic Mayo
1 lb salt fish
2 cups milk
4 cups mashed potatoes
3 cloves garlic chopped
1/4 cup chopped chives
3 Tbls Olive Oil
Freshly Ground Pepper
Place salt fish in a large bowl, rinse well several times, drain and cover with cold water. Allow it to soak for 1 hour changing the water every 15 minutes.
Place soaked fish and milk in medium pot and bring to a simmer for 2 minutes, until fish flakes. Remove from heat, drain, reserving milk for future use ( makes a great base for chowder).
Combine cooked fish with chopped garlic, egg, chives, olive oil and mix well
Add mashed potato and stir to combine
Form into cakes, pan fry in butter or olive oil until heated through.
