    Shazzie's Note:

    The best fish cakes I have ever had. So sad that tinned pilchards (or sardines) in tomato sauce don't appear as a known ingredient on Zaar as these beat all the other fish cake recipes (for me). Perhaps a few other "foreign" non-American members will have this ingredient at hand and give this a bash. Preparation time excludes making mashed potato - can use instant mash if desired).

      Beautiful! I actually received a few tins of pilchards as a house-warming gift when I moved into my first own flat, and never really knew what to do with them. Try it with pilchards in chilli sauce for a bit of a bite, especially in winter...

      I'm surprised more people don't use tinned pilchards as well,I'm a Brit so I was raised on them. This recipe is almost identical my own that I haven't used for many years but I'm going to! My difference is I didn't use the eggs then,but I didn't in burgers either though do now. I also used to add a packet of parsley and thyme stuffing mix to the fishcakes and dust them in flour before shallow frying or baking,gives them a nice crisp outer coating. Pilchard fishcakes are gorgeous!
