Cilantro stems have a mild though distinct flavor. Use them when you want a slightly less pungent cilantro presence than you'd get from the leaves.

1 cup finely crushed tortilla chips (from 3 cups chips)
1 medium red onion
1 bunch fresh cilantro
4 tablespoons olive oil

Heat oven to 350° F. Place the chips on a plate. Finely chop enough onion to measure 3/4 cup and enough cilantro stems to measure 1 tablespoon (reserving the leaves). Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, cilantro stems, and jalapeño. Cook until softened, 4 minutes. Pulse the cod, egg, salt, pepper, and the onion mixture in a food processor until combined but not pureed. Form 8 cod cakes. Coat each cake with the chips. Wipe out skillet. Add 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil and return the skillet to medium heat. Add half of the cakes and cook until golden brown, 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet. Wipe out skillet, add 1 more tablespoon of the remaining oil, and repeat with the last 4 cakes. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and heat until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, thinly slice the remaining onion. Place in a large bowl and toss with the oranges, 1/2 cup of the cilantro leaves, and the remaining oil. Serve with the cakes.
