Thanks. Did not see it said desalted. Also, I recommend you add that step of desalting cod in your recipe instructions. It won't hurt, particularly since this is for a contest. I hope you jell at least be among the recipes chosen to be tested.

Sounds delicious. Reminds me of Croquettes de morgue which we eat in Haiti. Only thing though, are u sure only 5 minutes poaching is sufficient for the salted codfish? I thought it was best to soak it on water overnight and even replace the water several times in order to desalt and soften it. Maybe in your case you don't need to do that because the potatoes will counterbalance the saltiness of the fish?

If you notice the ingredient list already mention that is 1/2 pound of desalted cod. So if you start the recipe with salted cod you need to soak it for 24h to 48h in cold water (it's better to keep it inside your fridge).
