We loved these! I used perch, but I think this would be great with a stronger-tasting fish, too (maybe salmon). The fritters seemed almost like hush puppies (in a good way); I might even try adding a little cornmeal next time. The other taster thought this might be even better with more fish added, but it was good as written, too. We tried a bunch of different dipping sauces...his favorite was the cocktail sauce and mine was wasabi sauce (the recommended horseradish was also good). Thanks for posting; it made for a delicious Friday fish fry!
