Fish Cakes

From the Kitchen of Wendy:

What she had to say: "The following is a recipe that's been a bi-monthly fare, at least, sometimes weekly, at our home. I tried it with my finicky nephew this summer and he loved it!"

Take 1 pkg. (6oz) of your favorite flavor Stove Top Stuffing Mix (I use a cheap off brand instead of Stove Top) and 1/3 cup Mayo and mix & match your recipe from these options:

fish options add-in choices vegetable possibilites

12 oz salmon, 1 Tbsp. lemon chopped
drained, skin and juice, 1 cup shredded green onion
bones discarded mozzarella cheese

2 cans (6oz each) 2 Tbsp. sweet pickle shredded
tuna, drained and relish, 1 cup shredded carrots
flaked cheddar cheese

Then follow the 3 simple steps:

1. Mix together stuffing mix with 3/4 cup water, mayo, fish, add-ins and 1/2 cup vegetables. Cover and refrigerate 10 minutes.
2. Heat large non-stick skillet sprayed with cooking spray (or oiled with 1 tsp. veg oil) on medium heat. Shape 1/3 cupfuls of the stuffing mixture into patties. Add to skillet in batches.
3. Cook 3 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides, turning over carefully.

Makes 6 servings, 2 fish cakes each.
I serve with ketchup, or you could use tartar or cocktail sauce.

"Using the web to help wives and moms with tried & true recipes-what a good idea!"

Thanks Wendy!!! Can't wait to try it!!! This sounds like it could be a fav of ours!!!
