This recipe shows you how to recycle leftover fish and vegetables to make delicious fish cakes. Although the recipe calls for salmon, you can use any kind of fish. The same applies to the corn, so try Brussels sprouts or cabbage if you have those. Even leftover mashed potatoes can be added. If the mixture is too loose to hold together, just add more breadcrumbs or some flour. If you do not have leftovers to use, then simply cook your fish before you make the fish cakes.

The following recipe uses fish, egg and breadcrumbs, as the main components for the fish patties, and then ginger, paprika, and soy sauce are used for flavor. A little lemon or lime juice squeezed over the fish cakes just before you serve them adds a delicious fresh zing to them, and you can serve these with a salad, and perhaps some kind of dipping sauce. A sweet and sour dipping sauce would suit these because of the mild oriental flavor, or you could serve tartar sauce if you prefer, since that always goes great with fish cakes.

Some people like to chill their fish cakes in the refrigerator for half an hour before cooking them because this makes them less likely to fall apart in the pan, but if you are careful when flipping them, and use either a very wide spatula or a pair of spatulas, this should not be an issue.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
