Reviews for Seafood Cakes with Herb Sauce
"OMG! Is there a mistake in the amount of servings listed?? For 40 servings, there is only 1 and 1/2 pounds of seafood? but so many other ingredients! I really like the idea of seafood cakes other than salmon cakes, and was eager to read and try such a recipe; but I think I'll stay away from this until further instructions or comments are listed in regards to the above ingredients."
"This was good. I used scallops and shrimp in the fish cakes, in the sauce I replaced mayo with salad dressing. I did not have chives or relish so I used Mezzetta bell pepper relish. I used a package of salmon similar to the tuna salad packages. Even with all these changes it came out well"
