    For Cod Cakes

    Heat oven to 400°. Place cod on a rimmed baking sheet. Rub with 1 Tbsp. oil. Roast until just opaque in center, 10–15 minutes. Let fish cool, then flake with a fork.
    Mix cod, whitefish, eggs, shallot, breadcrumbs, chives, 2 Tbsp. dill, and 2 Tbsp. water in a medium bowl. Season with pepper and mix vigorously to combine
    Reduce oven temperature to 200°; set a wire rack inside a large rimmed baking sheet. Heat remaining 4 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, drop scant ¼-cupfuls of fritter mixture into skillet; press gently with a spatula to flatten. Cook, turning once and adding more oil if needed, until golden brown and crispy around edges, about 4 minutes per batch. Transfer to prepared rack. Keep warm in oven while cooking remaining fritters.

    For Salad
    Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C
    With a knife or kitchen scissors cut the super long spirals into edible lengths.
    Toss the spirals with the 1 tablespoon olive oil
    Season the spirals with salt and pepper (about ¼-1/2 teaspoon of each should do it)
    Roast in the oven for about 15 minutes.
    While the spirals are roasting, make the dressing. In a jar with a lid, or in a bowl, mix together all ingredients for the dressing. Shake the jar (or stir vigorously) until you have an emulsion and all the ingredients are mixed together.
