The flavour of these were outstanding! I loved mine served cold with a side salad and topped with maldon sea salt and lemon juice. This recipe produces a very soft pattie, which didnt hold together as well as I would have liked (the only reason these didnt get the full 5 stars)so I added some fresh breadcumbs to firm the mixture up slighly. Loved the crunchy outer bread coating! Thanks for sharing I'll be making these again.
