Codfish Balls

1 1/2 lb Dry salt cod
3 c Potatoes; peeled & diced
-into 1/2" pieces
2 tb Butter
2 Eggs; beaten
Black pepper to taste


Soak the cod in water for 24 hours, changing the water 3 times. Drain and cut the cod into 1/2-inch pieces. Place the potatoes and fish in a saucepan and cover with fresh water. Boil until the potatoes are tender. Drain well and shake the pan over medium heat for a moment to dry the potatoes and fish a bit. Using a potato masher, mash up the fish and potatoes, being careful to avoid lumps. Add the remaining ingredients and beat with an electric mixer until the mixture is fluffy.

Deep-fry in fat that is 375. Each ball should consist of about 1 tablespoon of the mixture. Fry only 4 or 5 at a time so that the fat maintains its temperature. Cook until light golden brown. Drain on paper towels and keep warm in oven.
