Fish Cakes

This is one of my daughter's favorite dinners...  She is almost 3 years old, and within the last month she has been on a food strike.  She normally would eat anything I cook, but here lately she doesn't even want her favorite spaghetti or rice...  I have been making fish cakes a lot because I know it is one thing she will eat.. even on her strike.... LOL  She is eating them tonight beside me as I type right now:)

Fish Cakes
1 can white albacore tuna fish/ or good canned salmon, like wild alaskan
1 egg
2 tablespoons Olive oil Hellmans Mayo
1/2 teaspoon California garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
pinch Greek seasoning
about half sleeve saltine crackers, hand crushed...
Mix all together... heat veg oil to medium heat in skillet... I spoon a heaping teaspoon into my hand of the mix and make an oval shape, place in hot oil ... fry on both sides, only turning once.. about 3-4 min each side...


  1. your recipes seem so easy, and so delicious! that's the kind of cooking I am talking about!

  2. just read your recipe for "fish cakes". I make the almost exact same thing with salmon---my mother called them salmon croquettes. good with steamed cabbage, new stewed potatoes, and white beans with cornbread. Love reading your blog, Candy.
