Shape the potato cod cakes up to 8 hours ahead; cover and refrigerate until you are ready to cook them. Have the cod steamed at the market to save time. If you can't find panko, course Japanese breadcrumbs, substitute fresh breadcrumbs. Garnish with flat-leaf parsley sprigs and serve with dijon tartar sauce.
