very tasty - loved the flavor of the citrus blend which came through nicely. i also used the lemon zest in this. i usually like fish cakes crumby, so coated them in cracker crumbs and shallow fried them instead of broiling. these made for an enjoyable weekend lunch.

  3. Mash the potatoes and (while potato is still hot) mix in the fish and the marinade.
  4. Set the mixture aside to cool down.
  5. When the mixture is cold, add the beaten eggs and mix in.
