    Certainly not a quick meal, but I made these on a Sat.morning and cooked them in the evening with steamed potatoes and spinach. Flavor is great and a quick squeeze of lemon brought it out. They are delicate, so be careful. I might use the food processor next time to get the mixture less crumbly.

    Great meal. It takes a little prep time, but worth the effort. My fish cakes held together nicely, but handle with care.

    I'd never attempted any kind of fish cakes before because I had it in my head that they were too difficult. While the recipe takes some time and prep work it's absolutely worth it. A couple of tips: I steamed the cod in my rice cooker... so easy! And, I would suggest adding a bit more seasoning to the mix, especially if you choose not to use the sauce.

    This recipe was fantastic! Truly amazing and delicious. Dijon tartar sauce really made it stand out. I have shared the recipe with my family and friends.

    I tried to follow the recipe but got stumped when I got to the fish part. It didn't say what to do with it...flake the fish or to bread the fillets in the bread crumb mixture? I ended up flaking the fish. Because the cod was dry I ended up using more egg to make the cakes moist and stick together. Overall it tasted great, I especially liked the sauce. This dish works well served over mixed greens.

    If you like crab cakes when you go to the restaurant, you will love these. I should have read directions in advance to cut my prep time. Pre cook your fish and you can make these up to 8 hours in advance. They are excellent.

    These were good, but I did not like them as well as the other reviewers. I'd really like to give it 3.5 stars but don't have the option. I'm just reviewing the cakes because I did not make the tarter sauce. I followed the recipe exactly and I had trouble with about half of the cakes sticking together. The garlic was nice but to me, it seemed to be missing something. I also think I would have liked it better with a little more potato. I probably will not make again and look for another potato cod cake recipe.
