Fish cakes are a delicious appetizer that is served at most parties in Barbados. We also enjoy them at home as an everyday snack.
I decided to create them without the fish and they turned out great. The scallions,thyme and habanero pepper livens them up. Also making the batter thicker appeared to keep them from being super oily.
The next time I make these I am going to add a mashed potato to the batter.
Fry up a batch for your next party.
