Golden Fish Cakes

Our family loves seafood, so I've tried many fish cake recipes. I came up with this combination and it's been a hit at our house. It's outstanding served with corn bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound flaked cooked whitefish, cod or haddock
  • 1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Tartar sauce and lemon wedges, optional

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine the first nine ingredients; mix well. Shape into 12 patties, adding additional water if needed; coat with the Italian bread crumbs. In a large skillet, cook the patties in oil for 4-5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Serve immediately with tartar sauce and lemon if desired.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
