the onion, the bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons of the tartar sauce, the
Tabasco, and salt and pepper to taste, form heaping teaspoons of the

large deep skillet heat 1 1/2 inches of the oil to 350F and in it fry
the cod balls in batches for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side, or
until they are golden. Transfer the fritters with a slotted spoon as
they are fried to paper towels to drain. Serve the fritters warm with
the remaining tartar sauce.
