These Quick and Easy Fish Cakes are made even easier by using Gorton's fish filets! The flavors are incredible and can be served over salad or tucked between bread with a spicy aioli!
Ingredients
  • 1 bag Gorton's Breaded Filets
  • ½ red bell pepper, minced
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, minced
  • ¼ red onion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2½ tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ⅔ cup panko breadcrumbs + 1 cup to bread
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 egg yolk
