An easy dish which can easily be prepared and left in the fridge for children, husband or other lazy cooks in the household to be cooked next day. Also great with leftovers of fish or with frozen cheaper supermarket fish (which is usually not tasty enough to be eaten plain).
You can add some garlic to the onion. Chilli is optional and can be substituted with some mixed herbs. Chopped coriander can be added to the fish cake mix.
I added some dills and garlic. Fish cakes came out really tasty but I found incredibly hard to keep them in form.They were so fragile in the frying pan- could fall apart any second. Some ingriedent (maybe egg) must be added to keep the fish cakes harder. Or simply some flour could have been added to the mixture and then formed cakes again could have been rolled in flour. But generally fish cakes were tasty. - 02 Apr 2011
These were really tasty and all the family enjoyed them. However, I have to agree that they were too delicate and using less milk whilst cooking the Salmon helped the second batch. We had ours with home-made tartar sauce and it was incredible. - 09 Sep 2013
