• Just a heads up for those of you who use Tapatalk to access NCH&F. I will be removing support for that app effective immediately. The reasons are many, but the primary one is that it allows spammers to post here without first being authorized to do so. This, coupled with their increasingly aggressive and invasive ads and pop ups, has caused us to remove them from the site entirely.

Start by boiling your fish fillets until they are flaky, then set em aside to cool.

Boil peeled potatoes, set those aside to cool. You can use monterey jack instant potatoes if that's your thing.

Mash the cooled potatoes, course mash or fine, either is ok.

Shred your boiled fish into a mixing bowl, add about half as much potatoes as shreded fish. Add diced onion, garlic salt, pepper, onion powder, oldbay, and mix by hand.
Then add enough bread crumbs or cracker meal to the mix to thicken it up enough to hold its shape when making the patties.
Place the patties on wax paper on a plate and stick em in the the freezer for about an hour to firm em up. Don't skip this step☝ or they will fall apart in the pan.
I like to fry em in peanut oil, but regular ol veggie oil work fine.
I like to add hot pepper vinegar right before serving for a little kick.

I've fed folks that claim to hate fish these bad boys, couldn't keep them out the oil quick enough! I make them with bluefish quite a bit in the summer.

Fish and potatoes is easily one of if not the most traditional seafood meal in this part of NC.

Boiled fished(usually drum, bluefish or rock but you can use anything) and potatoes the first day. Use the left overs to make fish cakes the second day.
