    Made these, after reading the reviews. I usually follow the recipe exactly the first time I make something. This time however I decided to tweak this one a bit. I added 1/2 tsp coarse ground black pepper, 1 1/2 tsp of Lemon Pepper seasoning plus a good handful of finely chopped parsley.I did NOT add the Tbs of water as many reviewers suggested. I let the mixture cool before molding it into patties. Then I placed them in the freezer. Once frozen I floured, egged and breaded them. I left four out for dinner and returned the other eight to the freezer for dinner another night. I fried them in very shallow vegetable oil, they were so good can't wait to have them again!

    Thanks for the basic recipe. I searched for a way to use the amazing leftover striped bass my husband caught and I had grilled in foil the night before. The fish was tender and white, so I flaked it and added to the potatoes I had steamed then riced. Love to use Yukon gold. Left out the water, used both eggs and added parsley and some Old Bay seasoning. Fried in organic canola and the patties were amazing.

    Yeah, SarasotaCook points out several problems. I wish I'd seen her review before I tried this. Total disaster.<br/><br/>I used 4 large russet potatoes and I have a suspicion this was way too much. I eventually added 2 more eggs, for a total of 4, to the mix and it just got worse. This never really formed patties for me. I used 1 pound of frozen cod, defrosted, and cut into pieces to boil with the potatoes. At least it mashed well. I tried to fry this in a non-stick wok with plenty of oil on high heat as that was the best I could do with this. Didn't really come together.<br/><br/>They smelled great. I'm sure it works for someone. But the recipe is WAY off.

    After reading a few of the reviews, I chose to only use 2 potatoes.I grated in a shallot, omitted the water, added some breadcrumbs, lemon zest and parsley. Still felt a bit loose, but held together while sauteing. I used some leftover Talapia.
