Angelfish Fishcakes

Angelfish Fishcakes, sounds a bit too fishy to me, but if I called them Angel Fishcakes, people might have the impression that the fishcakes had angelic qualities!

Angelfish Fishcakes sounds overkill, too fishy, in language terms “redundancy”, but you get the point! You can use any fish, canned pilchards, canned tuna or fresh tuna for that matter! The secret here is in the combination of flavors. The salty fish, the creamy avocado, the tart kiwi and the crispy apple! Let me not get ahead of myself, lets stick to the fish for a minute. I prefer the game fish, hake is not bad, but my first choice is angelfish or yellow tail if you are using fresh fish. Whenever I buy angelfish to make for supper, I always buy more than I need! I can use it pate or these delicious fish cakes.

    Wat kan Tim Noakes se volgelinge gebruik ipv hawermout om viskoekies te bind!
