      A good, basic fish cake recipe. Use any cooked fish, either leftover, or canned, and it will work. Be sure to include enough butter, as it helps keep the inside moist. Also be careful when frying, as matzo meal will scorch if you don't keep an eye on it. Don't skip the chilling step, they will hold together better after it. These are good with any mayonnaise or sour cream based sauces you like. Sour cream with capers, dill, and lots of lemon is good.

      Really simple, really tasty! I always enjoy fish dishes that add subtle flavors without overpowering it. Only change I made to suit what I had on hand was to use breadcrumbs instead of the matzo.
