until flakey, about 20 min; drain. Meanwhile, boil potatoes until soft, about 15
min. Drain and mash potatoes, then mix with cod. In a separate bowl, mix
eggs, hot sauce, parsley, thyme, salt & pepper; add flour and blend until wellmixed.

Fire-Roasted Tomato Salsa

Use only fresh ripe tomatoes. Vine-ripened tomatoes are my personal favorites as they add a full-bodied
earthy flavor to the dish.

4 medium ripe tomatoes
1 small red bell pepper, whole
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
Juice of one lime
1-2 tsp Jehu Smokey Tom Medium or Hot
1/4 tsp salt

Pre-heat oven to broil.
Place tomatoes and whole pepper on a baking sheet and broil, turning once or twice, until charred
(about 8 minutes for tomatoes and 4 minutes for the pepper). You can also char them on a hot grill,
turning frequently. Put the pepper in a bag to steam and loosen the skin.
Skin and core tomatoes, removing most of the seeds, and chop. Skin and core the bell pepper, and
chop. Combine tomatoes and peppers with the remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
