Pretty tasty patties. The hubby requested I cut back on the use of crackers a little bit the next time I make these, though. Made for PAC Fall 2008. thanks for sharing

This is a correction of my previous review as well as an explanation, and I do apologise. I only found out after I'd made the recipe, that "1 packet saltines" means exactly 2 biscuits of the English cream cracker type!! (We do not not have saltines in South Africa). Therefore, using a 200 g/7 ounce box of lightly salted cocktail biscuits was obviously too much -- no wonder I found the result too dry. But I'd still suggest using about 3 - 4 ounces of crumbly, savoury cocktail biscuits. It really gave the fish cakes a great taste.
