This recipe is sooooo outstanding. The cardamom adds extra zing and loved it! I used left over salmon. I did leave out mace (substituted nutmeg) and then left out the pepper sauce.
Excellent flavor and appearence. Someone that doesn't like fish cakes gave this recipe a thumbs up. Only problem I had was holding them to gether. I cut the recipe in half and that may have had something to do with it,
