Fish Cakes and a Winner

This weekend my husband was in the mood for something out of the norm, food wise.

I find we get stuck in ruts with food and the variety of food we eat gets a little stale.

Enter the Fish Cake!

These are very simple to make, much like the black bean cakes.


.75 lb of Cod (wild caught not farm raised)
1 baking potato, peeled and diced
1/4-1/2 C panko bread crumbs
2 green onions finely chopped
1 clove of garlic diced
1 tbsp mayo
1 egg, beaten
2 tsp Old Bay
juice from 1/4 of a lemon

Simmer you cod for about 3 minutes in water (till the fish turns white).

Boil your potato until it is fork tender, then drain and set aside.

Put all of your ingredients in a bowl and mash with a fork.

If the mixture is too wet add more bread crumbs (hence why I put 1/4-1/2)

Patty out the cakes and fry in a skillet with some vegetable oil until golden brown (about 3 minutes on each side).

These came out wonderfully.  They were crispy and full of fish, not overwhelming with fillers.  The cod was mild in flavor and didn't have "fishy" smell or flavor about it.

We made 12 cakes that were about the size of the palm of my hand.  If you wanted you could make them smaller and they would make a perfect appetizer for a party. 

I have not forgotten about the my giveaway for Conscious Box that I put up on Friday.  I would like to announce the winner is Tonya!!!! 

Congratulations Tonya November's Conscious Box will be coming your way later this month.

I hope you all have a fantastic Monday.


  1. I am totally guilty of getting in food ruts, it happens to the best of us :)

  2. You don't have to tell me twice about getting bored with food. I'm never eating asparagus again after the last couple of weeks. LOL!

    I'd ban fish too... but these look good!

  3. Hi Rachel, this looks really good and I think we can all relate. :)

    On a separate not I wanted to thank you for your lovely comment. I couldn't agree with you more. No matter our faith or distance if someone is in need we come to their aid whether through prayer or physical service. Thank you for coming to my aid. I felt my burden lightened many times and I know it was the power of prayer. I'm grateful for your thoughtfulness and happy we have become blog friends. Take great care.....

  4. I am in a cooking rut. I just plain don't feel like doing it anymore! After making a different recipe every night for over a year, I think I've gotten burned out. :o(
