Easy Cod Fritters on the plate  Now, this Spanish recipe is super special to me because of the 3 reasons.

ingredients 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.

ingredients from Fred Meyer storeReason #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.
