Seafood Recipes


I love the cracklin' taste of a good fish cake in which the fish is the main ingredient, and that's why I love Josie's recipe. The blend of flavors is just right, and they are fried in Colavita extra virgin olive oil, which adds even more flavor.

            2 pounds any white-fleshed fish, cooked and flaked
            1 small onion, minced and cooked
            2 cups mashed potatoes
            4 large egg whites
            1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
            3 tablespoons mayonnaise
            2 tablespoons drained small capers
˝ teaspoon dried thyme
˝ teaspoon white pepper
˝ cup bread crumbs
            Colavita extra virgin olive oil for frying

Serves 4 to 6.

Mix all the ingredients together except the bread crumbs and Colavita extra virgin olive oil. Form into 8 large patties and dredge in the bread crumbs to coat.

In a large skillet, fry the fish cakes in Colavita extra virgin olive oil, turning once, until golden. Drain on paper towels.
