Spicy Tilapia and Feta Cakes

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Wholesome fish dishes do not have to be boring. I love crab cakes...I have made tuna 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!
