Cod Fritters are one of the popular Spanish tapas. If you are like me, who for the longest time didn’t know what tapas are, until I googled it online, it is simply means Spanish appetizers.
Reason #1 – this recipe was created for Fred Meyer‘s event called #TasteofSpain, that is currently going on right now at Fred Meyers. I was so thrilled to be part of it, creating and sharing Spanish recipes here & here, using ingredients that were imported from Spain like olive oil, chorizo, paella rice, Spanish wine, cheese, olives, tapas sauces and so much more. All of these Spanish ingredients are now available for you to buy at any Fred Meyer Stores.
Reason #2 – this delicious cod fritters recipe was entirely made by two of my daughters ages 2 & 5, and it was filmed on camera! Yep, there is our 1st cooking with kids recipe video on the bottom of this post. Even after 5 “don’t want to share” tantrums we were able to film tapa recipe to the end.
Easy Cod Fritters Recipe
- 1 lb salt cod soaked for 24 hours with 2 water changes (we used regular wild-caught cod)
- 4 medium potatoes peeled and sliced
- 2 eggs devided
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

- Place potato and cod into a pot, add enough water to cover them, add salt. Bring it to a boil, then cook on a medium-high heat for about 10 minutes, remove cod from the pot, let it cook. Cook potato until potatoes are soft when pierced with a knife. Remove from the pot, grab two forks and mash cod and potato.
- Add egg yokes, garlic, salt, ground pepper and parsley, Combine with a spoon.
- Beat egg whites with a mixer until doubled in size and soft peak forms.
- Carefully fold egg whites into potato mixture.
- Dump one tablespoon of cod mixture into a bowl with flour, roll it to create a fritter and place it on a tray.
- Heat the oil on medium-hight heat. When the oil is hot, add fritters and fry them for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden color. Remove and place them on a plate lined with paper towel. Serve warm with tapas or aioli sauce. Enjoy!
