Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This would be such a wonderful appetizer to serve up to guests!

This was great and simple! I will be making this again even though I don't usually eat fish.

Do you also have anything Gluten Free ?

Try using GF Bread bread crumbs, they substitute well and it looks like that would be the biggest substitution to make the recipe GF.

i am goin to make it and see what it is about

How can you rate this when you haven't even tried it!!! And only 3 stars!

I made these last night and they were absolutely FABULOUS !!! Nicely seasoned and perfect texture...... Will definitely make these again, however I believe I will need to double the recipe, as this recipe only makes 5 medium size cakes & in order to feed a family of five I would like to have the ability for a second helping ( plus a leftover one would have been awesome warmed the next day on a bun with a bit of aioli ! Five Star for sure !!!! Thank you !

Do you think I could use a different fish, maybe talapia. My sister likes salmon patties from canned salmon. I would like to get her to eat more fish.

Yes you can use any fish does not have to be catfish, and yes you can use the can salmon, just drain and flake it and mix everything together.
