Gathers the necessary ingredients to make these tasty cauliflower and cod fritters.
Trick: Instead of starch or cornstarch, you can use almond or rice flour.
Short cauliflower in pieces and boil it in a pot with water and a little salt for 15-20 minutes. After cooking, drain and mash it in a blender or electric mixer until it looks consistency similar to couscous. Then place the vegetable in a sieve or strainer and press very hard to drain the excess water.

In another pan with a little water and salt cook the already desalted cod for 10 minutes. After that time, turn off the fire, drain the water, let it cool down a bit and destroy it without the skin or the thorns.

Mix everything until you get one consistent dough for the cod and cauliflower croquettes, like the one in the image, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Reserve in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to make them easier to model.
