Good but the cakes were very crumbly when rolling in breadcrumbs so it was hard to handle. - 05 Jun 2015


Very nice fish cakes. Went down well with all the family. Will definitely make again as very easy to fling together. - 27 Jan 2014


Tried this recipe tonight for my bf and myself. Neither of us are big fans of fishcakes in general but we both loved this recipe. We made big ones, served them with Reggae Reggae sauce and had a decent sized salad on the side. Would reccomend! - 28 Jun 2013
