My family absolutely loved these! Second helpings were in order, I in fact had to restrain the children from a third helping as I was sure they were full after seconds! They later confessed I was right, “the food was just too yummy”! This time I used Royal Ocean’s Pilchards in tomato sauce. You can enjoy these fish cakes with a salad or with some mixed vegetables which can be steamed, roasted or stir-fried.
