I added one step to this which I think makes a big difference. Chill the cakes for an hour before frying. then they hold together perfectly! Thanks for a tasty recipe.

Loved everything about these except how salty they were. Pretty much inedible. I would make them again and use maybe half the amount of salt called for. They weren't the least bit fishy, which I liked. I used half a T. of dried tarragon and that was perfect for us. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Loved these fish cakes. Served with Tartar Sauce and coleslaw. Will have to buy cod more often.

Loved these, so much I have already made them twice this week. They are so moreish. I made mine with half Coley and half Mackeral, the combination of the two fish really adds to the taste. I served mine with horseradish (or garlic mayo) and rocket salad. Heaven!

Really tasty and quick. I made tartare sauce to go with them, otherwise they may have been a little bland - or maybe you would have just tasted the fish ;-) I couldn't get them to brown, but I'd certainly do them again, they were pretty easy. Thanks!

I made these a while back, and forgot to rate them. OH MY GOSH these are wonderful! The only bad part is processing the fish - ew. But, it is worth it for how yummy these are. I have made this recipe a few times now, and it turns out great each time. Thanks!

We LOVED these. Had trout in freezer that needed to be used. This recipe was so easy. I had no tarragon so i just used some season salt in it's place. I didn't feel like my fish was going to stick so i put the breadcrumbs in the mix and then coated my patties in corn meal. (saw in another recipe) and it worked out perfect. Thanks for posting !

These came out great! I think I added too much salt because I found them a little salty. I also did not add tarragon because I didn't have it. GREAT RECIPE!

I think I put in too much tarragon, but this dish was a little too hard to make for the overall result.
