Boiling salted water
1/4 cup butter

2 tbs. chopped parsley
3/4 tsp. each garlic salt and oregano leaves

Directions:
Cut potatoes into quarters. Cook in lightly salted boiling water for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender when pierced. Drain thoroughly: mash potatoes: stir in the butter, onion, parsley, garlic salt, oregano, pepper, and eggs. Wipe fish with damp cloth: cut in 1-inch cubes. Cook in boiling water to cover until fish flakes readily when prodded in thickest portion with a fork. Drain: flake fish and mix thoroughly with potato mixture. Cool, cover, and chill for at least 1 hour. Combine flour and cornmeal on wax paper or in shallow pan. Form fish mixture into patties about 3 inches in diameter and 3/4 thick. Coat both sides of each patty with flour mixture; shake off excess. Arrange in single layer on wax paper within reaching distance of range. Heat oil (about 1/8 inch deep) in a wide frying pan over medium heat until it ripples when pan is tilted. Add as may patties as will fit without crowding; cook until lightly browned (about 6-8 minutes), turning once. When done, remove patties from pan and drain briefly on paper towels. Arrange on warm serving platter; cover and keep warm while you cook remaining patties. When all are cooked, serve immediately.
