Let's Make It
Place fish in large bowl. Add enough water to completely cover fish. Let stand at room temperature 8 hours, changing the water at least every 2 hours to remove excess salt. Rinse fish; place in large skillet.
Add enough water to completely cover fish; bring to boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 min or until fish is tender. Rinse fish. Shred with fork; place in medium bowl. Add flour, water, onions, eggs, parsley, baking powder and pepper; mix well.
Heat oil in large deep skillet to 375°F. Carefully add level tablespoonfuls of the fish mixture, in batches, to skillet. Cook until golden brown, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels.
Soaking and rinsing salt cod for several hours may remove excess salt. The sodium level in this recipe is based on salt cod that has not been rinsed, so the actual amount of sodium in this recipe may be lower. You may also substitute fresh cod fillets in this recipe.
Substitute chopped fresh cilantro for the parsley.
