Potato Cod Cakes w/ Lemon Yogurt Dipping Sauce

Sometimes getting kids to eat fish can be a real challenge, but it's such a great source of protein that I'm always thinking of fun new ways to present it to little ones who resist it. Cod is an ideal introductory fish because of its mild flavor and light texture. It's also a good source of omega-3's, niacin and vitamins B12 and 6, all of which are important for growing bodies.

I find that whenever I serve my kids food they can hold and eat with their hands, they are more prone to eat it. For this recipe, I combined cod with some potato, cheese and breadcrumbs, molded it into bite-sized cakes and then served them up with a zesty dip. I'm never one to "sneak" fish or vegetables into recipes, but if your kids are averse to trying fish, these little cakes are delicious and a great way for them to enjoy something new. You never know, you may make fish fans out of your kids yet!

    So... do the mashed potatoes get added in with the cod? (I'm just not seeing where the potatoes go).

    Any tips on what I can use instead of eggs to bind everything together??

      A great substitute for eggs for binding would be mixing 1 tbsp of ground flax with 3 tbsp of water for every egg and putting that in. But, I have never tested it this way so I wouldn't be so sure of how it would turn out. If you try it out let me know how they turn out but I do have to say that you will get a nutty flavor from flax seeds. Enjoy!! :)

    is it possible to bake or toast the cake in a an oven toaster? my 2 1/2 year old loves most food drenched in oil. i'm just trying to remove it out of her system.

      Yes you can even put it in your oven as well. Put them at 400 for 15 minutes on a sprayed cooking rack. I haven't test this method but it should be fine, let me know the results!

    My 10 month old LOVED these. I only used egg yolk for hers, but they worked pretty well... I was sure she wouldn't eat the whole one (even though it was fairly small) but she could not eat it fast enough.

    We ate these tonight and yum. We have leftovers. Refrigerate? If so, for how long? Do you not recommend freezing since they are already cooked? Thank you in advance!

      Refrigerate up to 3 days and you can freeze but I would freeze before cooking.

    These were great, thanks! I used Haddock because I didn't have Cod and added a bit of fresh, chopped baby spinach and some black pepper to them as well. They were very tasty!
