Bermuda Codfish Cakes

Codfish cakes are offered by many restaurants in the island and are usually taken by Bermudians during lunch time or even as snacks. They are usually served on hot cross buns with either mayonnaise or ketchup. Raisin buns with fishcakes are also quite popular with the locals in Bermuda. 
Codfish cakes are also made with salted and dried boneless cods. Cooked codfish and mashed potatoes are mixed along with eggs. Salt and other seasonings are added in the mix. The seasoning would always have dried thyme and often some curry. Once the mix is ready, it is made into shapes of balls or patties, which are then pan fried in butter.
