12 Days Before Christmas – Day 11

Posted on

It is December 14, 2009 and 11 days before Christmas. If you recall we are counting down the days before Christmas with fingerfood recipes that pair well with Passaggio Unoaked Chardonnay. This recipe was in an earlier blog but I thought it appropriate to put out again. This is a fun one to make because my grandmother handed down the recipe with no measurements for the ingredients…you can do it. 🙂

Fried Baccala Patties. This was not the traditional Baccala dish, although Grandma made that one too for the Christmas Holidays. This was something made up ahead of time and ate whenever anyone came to visit.

Ingredients you will need:

Salted Cod Fish
dried breadcrumbs
parmesan cheese (dried)
parsley (fresh and chopped)
olive oil

Soak the cod fish in water for a few days in the fridge – changing the water a couple times a day
Drain water and squeeze water from fish – grind fish with meat grinder
Add your eggs (usually one per pound), breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, parsley
Make into patties about one to one and half inches thick
Fill frying pan with olive oil so that the patties are half-covered
Fry on both sides til golden brown – drain on paper towels

These make a wonderful seafood patty – hopefully you will enjoy them with your favorite white wine…I am thinking Passaggio Unoaked Chard for mine…

Oh, and by the way, Grandma always sat at the head of the table…
