Sardine Cakes 

I “doctored” the cakes up with loads of fresh ingredients. What makes fish cakes – salmon, tuna, sardines & more – fun is to “eyeball” ingredients; put enough of your favorites together to make a satisfying meal. 

To make 6 sardine cakes, I used 5 cans of sardines, drained and rinsed in cold 💦 water. I added a bunch of fresh dill; a few pinches of sweet Hungarian paprika, fresh juice from 3 lemons; 3 garlic cloves, minced; half of 1 red onion, chopped; & lots of freshly cracked black pepper! 3 farm-fresh eggs 🥚 made it all come together. 1/2 cup of favorite mayo kept the cakes from becoming dry. 1 cup of breadcrumbs for fill.

Have to use you hands to get everything perfectly blended. Roll up 6 cakes and place them on a buttered baking sheet. Put a tiny pat of butter on each cake.

Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until golden brown on top and around the sides.
