Recipe by Chuck in Killbuck

I'm a simple man therefore I like simple things and this little recipe is very simple and quick to make. Great for a camping trip where you'll cook your catch the same night. I've done it many times. You can use any type of fish making this. Serve with a Tarter or Hollandaise sauce and enjoy.

I made these tonight for dinner. They were really fast and simple as the title says. DH wasn't home and I wasn't sure when he would get home, so I did everything except fry the patties before hand. Then when he arrived, I went ahead and fried the patties. The next time I make these I will leave the water out as that made them to loose to form into patties. I had to spoon them into the skillet and then kind of pat and spread them out. They tasted great and the fish and potatoes did not over-power each other. Thank you for sharing this recipe Chuck!!!
