fish cakes – yum

I like cakes. Potato cakes, fish cakes, risotto cakes, pancakes, sweet cakes…cakes. Yum. Here’s a recipe for some savory cakes – fish cakes to be exact.

Serve ’em with a bit of aioli (mayo. + fresh lemon juice + a bit of garlic), a side salad and dinner is served. Hosting a party? Size them smaller and enjoy as an appetizer…
