Good recipe. I seasoned the fish with salt & pepper, and then cooked it in 1/2 white wine, 1/2 water and added a bay leaf. I used seasoned bread crumbs (as I didn't have cracker crumbs on hand)and used only 1/4 cup of oil (you don't need to drown these - just a little oil will make these browned & crispy). Next time I wouldn't mash the fish so much - I'd leave it kind of chunky, and maybe use slightly more fish (or less bread/cracker crumbs). I was surprised that my husband really liked these - and he even suggested that I should make some "mini" catfish cakes as an appetizer for our next party. You could certainly use tilapia, or any other white flaky fish for these (my mother has even made a similar version with canned tuna!)
