Tortilla-Crusted Cod Cakes

Yield: Makes 4 servings

Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds cod fillet
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup finely crushed tortilla chips (from 3 cups chips)
  • 2 oranges, peeled and thinly sliced into circles

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 350 °F.
  2. Finely chop enough onion to measure 3/4 cup and enough cilantro steams to measure 1 teaspoon (reserving the leaves).
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, cilantro stems, and jalapeno and cook until softened, 4 minutes.
  4. Pulse the cod, egg, salt, pepper, and the onion mixture in a food processor until combined but not pureed.
  5. Form 8 cod cakes. Coat each cake with the chips.
  6. Wipe out skillet. Heat 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil over medium heat. Add 4 cakes and cook until golden brown, 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a baking sheet.
  7. Wipe out skillet and repeat with 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil and the last 4 cakes. Bake until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  8. Thinly slice the remaining onion. Toss with the oranges, 1/2 cup of the cilantro leaves, and the remaining oil. Serve with the cakes.
