Copy and pasted. Thanks for posting.

I think I might be able to sneak fish onto the menu. Mrs 40 C is afraid of fish bones.

Yes. When you first open it, don't be surprised. It almost looks like it has gone south. But it has a wonderful aroma of the sea. Make sure you read the directions before you use it. It is different from the other ones. They even had one for the lobster also. I was certainly surprised to see it also.

This fish cake recipe is amazing for me.
I will try this recipe on next weekend.
The nice thing about fish cakes is you can use almost any fish that suits yoru fancy. Even canned tuna. Although I prefer the tuna in a pouch. Less liquid and more flavor. My mother always used Cod or Haddock. Both were staples in our house. Specially salted cod.

Fish alone can be very bland in taste. It depends on the kind of fish. Fish cakes need a lot of seasoning. If mixed with mashed potatoes, the potatoes need to be seasoned separately. When made with bread crumbs, you need to taste the mixture before you add the egg. As we all know, fat has flavor. And there is no fat as such in fish cakes. Mackerall is a very oily fish and loaded with flavor. The same goes for sardines, salmon, etc. Other fish need all the help they can get. And that has to come from seasoning.

recipe

Fishcake recipe Mashed potatoes; 1 lb- I like to use instant potato buds. The reason is because they seem to be firmer and hold their shape better. 1 lb flaked fish (clams,shrimp,crab,trout,walleye,catfish etc.) I steam the fish and let it cool. If using canned clams, no need to cook. 1/4 cup of chopped onion or green onion (white parts) 1/8 cup dried parsley season with salt & pepper 1 tbsp lemon or lime juice Additional seasoning may be added- old bay,garlic powder,onion powder etc, what ever you like. In a bowl, mix all ingredients until it is thick and sticky. You can thicken it by adding flour or bread crumbs. Shape cakes to about 1/2 inch thick,3 inch rounds. At this time, you can coat them with flour, cornstarch or bread crumbs. At this point I like to place them on a baking sheet and let them cool in the fridge for about 30 minutes to firm up. Heat Crisco or oil & butter in a pan to medium heat then cook until browned on both sides. Serve with sauce of your choice, aoili, cocktail, tarter etc. NOTE: I have made them with "sticky rice" in lei of the mashed potatoes. 3 stars 1 reviews
