  3. On wax paper, divide mixture into 6 equal piles; form each pile into a patty. Make sure noodles are incorporated and are not sticking out.
  4. In a medium skillet, heat vegetable oil and cook patties over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side until golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve with cilantro-lime mayonnaise.
  5. For the cilantro-lime mayonnaise, mix mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon cilantro, lime zest and lime juice in a small mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly. Chill until ready to serve.

The consistency, texture, and flavor come through on this one. It's great. Although, I like the lime sauce a little less strong so I add less lime juice.

This wasn't for us - sorry. The taste just wasn't there and we didn't like the texture. The mayo was too limey for us. I made this exactly the way it was stated in the recipe.
