These cod and corn fritters make a nice change from the easy fish recipes you might be more used to making. You do not have to use cod for them; you can use any white fish. You will need cooked cod for making this fish fritters recipe so if you have leftover cooked fish instead, you can use that for the same results.

Drained, canned, or thawed corn is fine – it does not have to be fresh. The lime, curry powder, and chili add a touch of the East to these tasty fish fritters and these oriental treats are perfect when paired with a homemade sweet chili sauce recipe. Of course, you can use a store-bought chili sauce instead of making it, but homemade chili sauce is extra nice.

Use mint and basil in the chili sauce instead of the lime leaves if you prefer. Serve these delicious cod and corn fritters with fries or potato salad. They would also be nice with boiled rice.

If you usually follow the same recipe for cod cakes or tuna patties, you might like to try this recipe because it offers an oriental touch which is unusual, and the combination of ingredients works really well to bring a well-balanced flavor and delicious meal to the dinner table.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
