(ATK) Fish Cakes

We borrowed a cookbook from our neighbors, the Buchanons. Thank you!! Holy cow, I am in love with this cookbook for lots of different recipes. This is one of them, delicious! Just a warning, any recipe that comes from this cookbook is NOT easy. Or quick...but sometimes, you just need a ridiculous recipe that is SO yummy! This doesn't take a ton of time, but it takes a little planning because you have to let the cakes refrigerate for a little while.

Fish Cakes
Serves 4
1 pound cod fillets, cut into 1" pieces
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1 large egg white
1 shallot, minced
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup flour
Lemon wedges

Pulse half of cod fillets in food processor until they form mix of equal parts finely minced and coarsely chopped pieces, about 4 pulses. Transfer processed cod to large bowl and repeat with remaining cod. Sprinkle bread crumbs over fish.
Whisk egg white, shallot, parsley, mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper together in bowl. Using rubber spatula, gently fold mixture into cod and bread crumbs until mixture just holds together.
Divide cod mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each into round cake, about 3 inches across and 1.5 inches high. Transfer to plate, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
Spread flour in shallow dish or pie plate. Dredge fish cakes in flour, shaking off excess. Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Carefully lay chilled fish cakes in skillet and cook until well browned on both sides, 8-10 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking. Carefully transfer fish cakes to platter and serve with lemon wedges.
