    Tisme's Note:

    Saw this recipe on a television show being made and just had to try these. They have egg or breadcrumbs, they are all snapper and vegetables. They hold together quite well and a very tasty. The original recipe calls for pan frying but I lightly oiled an oven tray and used in the oven. I think the B.B.Q. would be great! They could also be made smaller and would make great appetizers.

      These were amazing thanks Tis. We caught black snapper today for these and I made no changes to your recipe. I sprayed the tray with oil, then layed them out and gave them a spray, then baked them for 1bout 15 minutes. They may not be as coloured as frying would have made them, but they held together perfectly and were super healthy. We ate them with Thai Cabbage Salad as the flavours in it matched the cakes so well (and it was served hot too which we loved on a cooler night)
