Fish Cake Patties
This dish always reminds me of the days when my dad would come home after fishing and surprise us with an oio or bone fish. My mom would scrape the flesh off the bones and mash it to make a paste. Now the fish cake paste is readily available in all our markets. This is a basic recipe, you can use this to add your favorite seasonings. Enjoy them just as is or with your favorite dipping sauce.
