      I used a mixture of flounder and surimi, mainly because that is what I had as dinner choices I didn't make yet. I definetly should have upped the amount of bread crumbs. The cakes kept falling apart while I cooked. But besides that, they taste awesome.

      Good idea. I didn't follow the recipe exactly used it more as a springboard then added my own seasonings. It was a nice alternative recipe for fish (that thankfully didn't taste too fishy).

      We really enjoyed these last night. I, too, had to use lemon instead of lime. I was sure I had gotten limes at the store, but they weren't there. I am going to make these again with the correct ingredient. Having said that, I would like to say that these went together very quickly and were done in no time at all. I used hokie as the fish and used your Green Goddess Sauce to accent the fish. Thnx for posting, Derf.
