Recipe by Becky Wergers
"These fish cakes are great with tartar or cocktail sauce or a simple squeeze of fresh lemon or lime. For a change of pace add a bit of chili powder, cilantro and jalapeno or a teaspoon of Cajun spice. Nice served with boiled red potatoes and a spinach salad. This recipe has two cooking options: you can fry the cakes or bake them -- it's up to you!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Wow, after reading the other reviews maybe I did something wrong because these came out WONDERFUL for me. They are amazingly similar in taste to the filling of restaurant style "stuffed crab" or "stuffed fish". I didn't change a thing (but my potatoes were small). Good job, Becky!
This could have turned out better. I also had a problem with stickiness with this dish. I think it was because I had the wrong ratio of potatoes to fish. I did use two potatoes, but I guess they were larger than the recipe posters were. I think I'll try this again sometime, with less potatoes. I did add more spicy seasonings and I am glad I did. Once I got past forming this into patties and baking them, it was a good recipe.
I used talapia because we had it in our freezer and I thought this would disguise the taste of fish that I don't like, and it totally worked! This recipe tastes as good as restaurant crab cakes. One of the best on this site.
This receipe is best prepared fried, but baked in the oven is certainly not bad. Really enjoyed!
I loved it as a base recipe. I added flour to the amount required to bond nicely.
Not sure why the person that gave that low rating, it's pretty easy to correct the texture if it is too sticky...rule of thumb..never follow recipe too closely..adjust as needed!
I would have rated it a zero if the scale would have allowed it. May be okay if you like adhesives. This stuff was so sticky you could have used it to glue a battleship to the side of a building. Prep time was longer than stated. Tasted plain. I'd suggest losing the flour and replacing it with moist bread crumbs and using eggs (or egg whites) in place of the milk
These are pretty tasty. My kids loved them and so did my husband. I would recomend these to anyone!!!
My family and I enjoyed this recipe. I will make it again, though I found the recipe to be a bit time consuming.
