I typically don’t share fish recipes on this blog, but I’m going to make an exception here.
Because you can’t not know about these fish cakes.
I’ve been working on mastering the “fish cake” for some time now…mostly because they’re a great option when there’s little else than a can of old tuna in the cupboard.
Previous attempts at fish cakes have been quite disastrous, and I think I know why. You can’t use watery veggies or else it throws off the burger-like balance and they start looking like lumpy pancakes, bleeding watery guts all over the pan.
The recipe makes about 6 cakes (so about 2 servings) and each serving has:
