    Recipe contributed by Rachel Williamson
    • 1 lb (500 g) dried salt cod
    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • 4 peppercorns
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
    • 1 bay leaf
    • Vegetable oil
    • 1 small onion, sliced
    • 2 cups (500 mL) cold, mashed, cooked potato

Cut cod into small chunks. In saucepan, combine 2 cups (500 mL) water, peppercorns, bay leaf and onion. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
