Brum Fish Cakes - Ye Olde King's Head
Back when I lived in Santa Monica, CA, we had a local pub/restaurant called Ye Olde King's Head. They had wonderful fish and chips, but my go to was usually their "Brum Fish Cakes"... two large, roundly fat fishcakes with a fried fine bread crumb coating, served with tartar sauce, peas, and sliced beefsteak tomatoes.
They are still there, but sadly the photos on their site menu show the fish and chips look nothing like back in that day (early 90's), and the brum fish cakes are no where to be found.
These things were awesome... fine crispy coating, with an interior of shredded and lump fish. I'd love to try and recreate these babies. My recollection from that time is that they were very crispy on the outside, very moist and savory on the inside, with hints of citrus, paprika, garlic, and a hint of sweetness and spice.
Any of you here know what I am talking about, and hopefully have a method to recreate these? If not, what is your best fish cake recipe?
