Serves 1 - 8 Cakes

These cakes are perfect for a beach day but nobody denies that we can't enjoy them wherever we want. This recipe is a winner, many times I have prepared fishcakes with very good results but these ones are just delicious!

Sorry Alice for not having replied sooner :( Anyway, these cakes do not need to be dipped in eggs just rolled in breadcrumbs. Ciao

By all means they can be frozen. Thanks for the interest. In any moment now I'll be posting an interesting recipe to commemorate the day of the woman. Ciao
