Fish Cakes....


How many times have you said, these fish cakes are so bland? It's time to try a new recipe and I think you will like this one. Many recipes use potatoes. If I wanted a potato cake; that would be fine. But what I'm after is a nice tasting fish cake. Adding a touch of Old Bay Seasoing is what sets this recipe apart from the others. I use an ice cream scoop to portion out the cakes and gently coat them in Ritz cracker crumbs or Panko crumbs. Sweet red pepper makes a nice addition to these cakes as well, if you like sweet peppers.

Fish Cakes
1 lb fish
1/4 cup bread crumbs
3/4 tsp Old Bay Seasoning (or to your taste)
1 Tbsp mayo
1 egg
1 small onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 Tbsp chopped, fresh parsley
salt and pepper
Pulse the fish in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Mix everything together, form 1/2 cup scoops into cakes, gently coat with the cracker crumbs and fry over medium/medium-high heat for about five minutes a side. Each side should be nicely browned. Serve hot.

These will freeze well. Just thaw completely before frying.
Till next time.....
