What you need

  • 1 lb boneless whitefish, like cod or tilapia or something
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • .25 cup flour
  • .25 tsp black pepper
  • .5 tsp garlic powder
  • .25 tsp chili powder

Do this

  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a skillet on medium heat and cook fish until flaky
  • In a bowl, break fish into flakes
  • Add mashed potatoes, egg, green onion, and spices and mix
  • Gradually add breakcrumbs and mix until mixture holds shape into a ball
  • Form mixture into balls. Squish balls flat
  • Coat both sides of each fish cake in flour and transfer to the fridge for about 20 minutes
  • Heat rest of oil in skillet on medium heat and cook fish cakes until golden brown on each side

    You can put tartar sauce on these, but I think that’s nasty.
