Wholesome fish dishes do not have to be boring. I love crab cakes...I have made tuna cakes...so why not tilapia cakes? Add some feta and hot sauce and really make it an interesting fish dish. Serve with a dill sauce or simple sour cream.

Just made this for the first time and it was simple and delicious! I used an extra egg which worked well and didn’t use dill because I didn’t have any but the flavor was still great! Read More

This was really good. I used Basa fillets instead. Otherwise followed the recipe. One fillet was enough for two of us. Served with a lettuce salad for a light supper. Read More
