Broiled Fish Cakes with Ginger and Cilantro
1 8-oz baking potato
1 1/2 lb Cod fillets; or other white fish, mild and delicate
1 tb Minced fresh ginger root
1/2 c Minced cilantro leaves; plus more for garnish
1 Fresh red chili pepper; minced or dried red chili pepper, minced or 1/4-teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
Freshly ground black pepper

Boil potato in salted water to cover until it is tender but not

Meanwhile, place fish in a skillet that can later be covered. Add
water to cover, salt the water, and bring to a boil over high heat.
Cover, turn off heat, and set a timer for 10 minutes. After that
time, use a slotted spoon to remove fish to a bowl.
When potato is done, peel it and mash it with the fish. Add ginger,
cilantro, hot pepper, and salt and pepper to taste. Work mixture with
your hands until it is well blended. Shape into 8 burger-shaped
Preheat broiler; set rack about 4 inches from heat source. Brush
patties on both sides with oil, then place on a nonstick baking
sheet. Broil carefully, until nicely browned on top; turn and brown
on the other side. Sprinkle with more cilantro. Serve hot with lime
