Toasty Spanish paprika gives these cod cakes their decidedly smoky flavour. The peppers used for the spice are smoked over oak logs before being dried and ground. Once you've tried this versatile spice, which comes in hot and in sweet varieties, you'll want to use it on everything. This recipe calls for the sweet variety which lends itself well to the delicate flavour of the cod. You'll also need panko, a Japanese-style breadcrumb, which will give the cakes their light texture.

2 lbs (1 kg) Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 tbsp (25 mL) olive oil
5 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tsp (10 mL) garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp (25 mL) smoked paprika
