Buffalo Style Crusted Fish Patties or Fish Cakes Recipe

Of the three pretzels that I received from Boulder Brand, the Glutino buffalo style is my favorite.  It has some kick to it and I love that it's not too spicy,  just the right amount of   spice in it.
I have left over  steel head fish in the refrigerator and wanted to make  fish patties out of it so here's what I came up with.

  • 2 medium carrots, grated
  • 1 cup of frozen spinach
  • 2 cups of cooked mung beans, served as a binder for the fish
  • 1 teaspoon  dried oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 pack of meatloaf mix, (YEP I added  that!)
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed  buffalo style pretzels for crunchy factor

  • Mix  all the ingredients in a bowl.
  • Form a palm size patty and rolled it on the crushed  pretzel.

  • Put some parchment paper in the  baking sheet and line up the patties.

  • Drizzle  some olive oil on top of the patties and bake it  for 50 minutes or until the patties are brown.  The barbecue flavor in  the pretzel give the patties a really tasty twist.  You won't even  notice that you are eating a fish!
When it is done, you can put it in a bun and eat it like a hamburger or you can eat it  like I would, with rice and veggies!  I love having frozen veggies in my freezer because I can just steam  them and we have instant  variety of vegetable.  Boxes of Uncle Ben's  long grain with wild rice is also a staple at my kitchen.
I made  a lot of patties so I freeze some of them after we ate some.  Now, I can just pop it in the oven when I am craving for some fish and I am good to go.  My husband love the patties with ketchup but I love mine with  sriracha.  Bonappetit!

I wasn't familiar with the Boulder brand but I really like your idea of crushing pretzels to use in recipes. I've never made a fish patty like this but I'm putting in on my to-do list. I wonder if tuna would be good in this recipe. I'll have to give it a try.

Shirley, I think tuna would be a great alternative too. I just use this because I did not want it to go to waste.

This sounds great. I am gluten free and I love glutino pretzels. I haven't tried the buffalo flavor though...that sounds amazing! I could use the breading portion on top of tofu, so many ways to use this!

Tyra said...

Okay this made me hungry! I love fish cakes and I love buffalo.... perfect combo. I love that you can make a bunch and freeze whenever and garnishing with sriracha is my type of garnish!

I have just started to spice up what I use to bread my homemade chicken strips and pretzels are always a hit in our house. It is so smart to use gluten free pretzels to take into account others' food sensitivities. Thanks for sharing.

This looks like a meal that my husband would love! I like to play around with recipes and find ways to spice them up and make them different from other recipes. I prefer to make up a lot of our food up from not processed foods.

So I am definitely on the hungry side now reading this post, I love pretzels but mainly the ones I buy when in Germany they are just superb. This is a new recipe to me and a very good one at that, thanks for sharing

I'm not a fan of fish at all but my other half and son love it. I'd love to make these patties myself to give to my son for dinner, he likes fish cakes like this because he can pick them up and eat them himself. Thanks for sharing, I need to make these soon :)

Nancy said...

Aww this looks super good. I'm home at my parents house now and I usually like to cook them a fwe meals when I'm visiting them (I live literally across the continent from them). I think they'd love to be served this, a little healthy, a little yummy = 1 success meal :) Am I right?

Pretzels are my staple snack food in the office. Every time I am hungry I pop a few in my mouth and I'm good to go until my next meal! I love how I can pair it with a cheese dip. So delish! Thanks for sharing your recipe. I will have to give it a try! :)
