Reviews for Golden Fish Cakes
"Mixture was a little too wet to form into patties but even though they didn't hold together well, they tasted great! I used leftover halibut from a meal of fish tacos."
"I just loved this recipe, I have been looking for a recipe for fishcakes and no one seems to be able to connect fish with cakes, but they were delicious. thank you."
"This was great"
"This wasn't bad although I had to add way more breadcrumbs to make it stick. If I do again I won't put any water in the mixture. Added parmesan and a bunch of other seasonings - I can just never resist! But they were somewhat of a nightmare to shape into patties and I felt like I had more of the stuff on my hands than got onto the skillet. I definitely don't think I'm a fishcake person. They tasted good though."
"EXCELLENT! Used tilapia and added parmesan (per other reviewer's suggestion) and some dry bread crumbs to the fish patties before coating to get them to stick together better. Also used a mixture of cornmeal and italian bread crumbs for the coating. VERY TASTY!!"
