Really messy to work with but gets 5 stars cause my sniffling boy ate something with a lot of pleasure. These indeed are delicious if a picky 4 year old loves them and asks for leftovers. We used all salmon and sprinkled some lemon pepper afterwards.
I made these because so many people said they were outstanding. Not only did my kids not eat them, I almost didn't either because the consistency was off-putting and mushy. They weren't awful but certainly not worth making again. The effort of boiling the potatoes, cooking the fish and making the whole thing into a cake, dipping in egg and bread crumbs to fry was a whole lot of effort for something with so little flavor. They definitely need something more than nutmeg and Worcestershire.
this was great had a nice texture to it, and was fun to make, we had it along side a salad and in between bread with tarter sauce and lettuce for a fancy fish sammy.
My family absolutely loved this! Even my little one who swears she hates halibut. I used halibut that I had cooked in the crock pot with mango salsa the night before and this added a wonderful extra flavor to it. I found that I was out of Worcestershire sauce so I was a little concerned that it wouldn't have alot of flavor so I did add extra pepper and sea salt with a tough of extra nutmeg also. Being cooked with the salsa the night before it turned out fabulous! We will definetely be making this again.
The cook times took a little longer for me, maybe due to the type of potato or thickness of fish. To help the messiness, after forming the patty, I used a spatula to carry & flip the patties in the egg & bread crumbs. I added a few crumbs to the mix, but the patties were still messy, though I didn't mind. All in all, the patties came out great tasting! I'll try different potatoes & different seasoned crumbs next time for a different flavor. Maybe I'll try a different fish too. I used Italian crumbs & red potatoes this time around. I didn't have any halibut, so I used extra salmon.
LOVED this..i used Cod..had to use butter on my hands not flour...but they were a hit for my picky boyfriend! Thanks!!
Big hit with my whole family. Very yummy. I added some bread crumbs to the fish mixture before making patties. This helped firm up the mix and made it less messy. Also increased the nutmeg and Worcestershire to a teaspoon and added some Old Bay seasoning.
This is so so good. Even my picky 2-year old ate it. We made our own seasoned bread crumbs and used our left over salmon. It's messy, but thanks to the previous reviews, I was prepared.
