"Continuing my recipe quest thru *Modern German Food* by Roz Denny, this recipe intrigued me. Iceland is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, so seafood abounds & we often eat fish cakes (usually made w/white fish, salmon, tuna or crab). *Fischfrikadellen mit gruner Sauce* in German, this recipe uses white + smoked fish fillets & then compliments them w/an equally intriguing herbed sauce. I have not made this, but it will be on my cooking agenda after our return from the U.S. in mid-Nov. *Edited to Add* on 4/3/08 -- I have made this recipe now, modified the sauce slightly to add some flavor zip & added a note below the prep Re a substitution that works well. *Enjoy* !"

"This was good, especially the sauce. My cakes may have been a bit thick, so they didn't get as crunchy as I'd hoped. I will keep it but I will need to get the hang of it."
"This is definitely a keeper! We loved the fish cakes and the sauce. I only had smoked fish and they were delicious. Next time I will try a mixture. Thanks for this recipe."
"I just made the sauce...great fry sauce!"
"This goes to together very quick and makes a delicious fish dish. I did use baby shrimp and Old Bay seasoning. The shredded potatoes were spun dry in my salad spinner. The fish mixture was formed by hand into patties. For the sauce, I used a combination of basil, Greek oregano and thyme and Creme Fraiche for the Quark. I will keep this to try when I have smoked fish."
"I have had this saved for a while to make, annoyed I have left it so long as this is a wonderful recipe. We absolutely loved the sauce, exceptional flavour. I made with white fish, smoked fish and salad prawns. The smoked fish I had was not enough in weight so I mixed in some prawns as well. I will say it was perfect in flavour, but I will say the weight of my smoked fish was only 170g and this was perfect. The amount listed is for about 255g I think this might over power these wonderful fish cakes. Although I will say I added extra seasoning as well, so this may be why. Whatever I may have changed. This is a wonderful dish and one I will be making again. Gorgeous, a definite winner twissis."
