Step 1In a small pot, cover potatoes with water and boil for about 15 minutes or until very tender. Drain well and mash with potato masher; set aside.
Step 2Meanwhile, heat oil over medium heat in nonstick skillet. Cook shallots, garlic and thyme for about 2 minutes or until softened. Add cod and wine; cover and cook for 2 minutes.

Scrape into a bowl and add mashed potatoes; combine evenly using your hands. Shape into 6 patties or ovals.
