I made a Poor-man's version of this - using an extra can of tuna instead of the shrimp and scallops...and a splash of spaghetti sauce instead of the tomatoes, and almost all dried seasoning...like I said: Poor-man's version. This probably didn't give your recipe much justice, but it was still really good, I'm glad to find a new way to eat tuna!
If I can make this dish and get rave reviews anyone can since I rarely cook. I literally threw it together knowing I wouldn't have a second to spare to make it on time to a traditional Italian 7-fish-dinner Christmas Eve celebration with friends. I snuck 2 cakes before leaving my house -mmmm yummy. They were a smash success. I used the exact recipe above, except also added fresh dill. Easy and very, very tasty.
We Loved this - I think they're better than crab cakes. Because of dietary restrictions, I substitued 1/2 cup eggbeaters for the one egg. I finely chopped the scallops before sauteeing, and substituted 8 large shrimp finely chopped & sauteed for canned shrimp. I added 1 tsp Dill and substituted 1/8 tsp Chili Power for fresh hot chile peppers. Instead of flour, I dipped the cakes in eggbeaters and dredged lightly in oats. Next time I'll add some chopped celery. Yum.
I had some scallops that needed to be used and was looking for something different. These were to die for! I used thawed shrimp instead of canned, cut back on the chile peppers ever so slightly and used Panko instead of regular bread crumbs. After sauteing the scallops and shrimp, I deglazed the pan with a little white wine and reserved that liquid. After cooking the cakes, I deglazed that pan with the reserved liquid, stirred in some cooked brown rice and served the cakes over the rice. Very tasty combination.
I use this recipe for my stuffed sole.
really great recipe, we used fresh catch from fishing trip and it was great. Texture and spices were excellent and after lots of prep, the final product was easy to make just right.
Love it! Prepared exactly as is and my husband said it was very good. This is one way to get him to eat his fish. Thanks for posting because I will be making this part of my regulars. :)
I have made these several times, skipping the scallops as they are hard to find here in Finland. They are excellent. I have made them with pollock and cod instead of tuna and they are great. I just season and grill the fish and flake it as I would the tuna. My only advice if you have kids is to lower the garlic, 4 cloves is quite a bit for most kids.
These are absolutely delicious! Instead of canned, I used all fresh fish, scallops, shrimp and a small piece of salmon which I sauteed lightly in tad of butter and garlic. I also substituted fresh chile peppers for a garlic chile sauce. Makes 9 or 10 patties. Leftovers were just as yummy the next day.
This recipe has become a staple I make every few months. I use 4 cans of tuna and use crushed rosemary and olive oil triscuits instead of bread crumbs. I am sure the recipe is delicious as is I made the alterations due to what I had available in my kitchen. I serve them with my homemade remoulade sauce. 1 cup of mayo, 1 tbs ketchup, 1 tbs Creole mustard, 1/2 stalk finely diced celery, 2 tbs finely diced onion, 2 cloves diced garlic, a dash of cayenne and a couple dashes Tony Cachere's and fresh ground pepper to taste. They're a huge hit every time I make them and my friend from up north even said he prefers these fish cakes over traditional crab cakes!
I used two 5oz cans of tuna, 6oz frozen salad shrimp, 6oz can of crab meat and a 14.75oz can of salmon. I doubled all the other ingredients and made 12 patties to serve 6 people. I substituted oats for the bread crumbs and chili powder for the fresh chili because that is what I had. The kids all loved it. I served it over fresh spinach with a drizzle of Remoulade dressing over each. Absolutely wonderful!
