These hearty fish cakes are made from a combination of diced cod, garlicky mashed potatoes, matzo meal and egg. (Letting the cakes rest for a few minutes before frying helps them hold together in the hot pan.) Served on the side, a creamy, zesty sauce is perfect for dipping. We're completing the dish with a slaw of thin-sliced green cabbage marinated in apple cider vinegar, for a fresh, bright counterpoint to the rich fish cakes.

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Peel and large dice the potatoes. Peel the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash each clove once to flatten. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Small dice the cod fillets and transfer to a bowl. Thoroughly wash your hands after handling the cod.

2 Cook & mash the potatoes:

Add the potatoes and garlic to the pot of boiling water. Cook 14 to 16 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Using a fork, mash until almost smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

Make the slaw:
3 Make the slaw:

While the potatoes cook, in a large bowl, combine the cabbage, sugar, vinegar and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
