  1. Place the potatoes into a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place the halibut and salmon into a skillet or large saucepan, and pour in the milk. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 5 minutes depending on the thickness of your fillets. Drain off milk, and set fish aside.
  3. When potatoes are done, drain, and place in a large bowl. Mash potatoes with one of the eggs and the butter until fairly smooth. Season with nutmeg, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Mix in the fish, taking care not to break into too small of pieces.
  4. Beat the remaining egg, and place on a plate. Place bread crumbs on a separate plate. Lightly flour your hands, and form the fish mixture into patties. Dip each patty into the egg, then coat with breadcrumbs. Place the fish cakes on a plate, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Fry the fish cakes for about 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and serve fresh and hot.

this was great had a nice texture to it, and was fun to make, we had it along side a salad and in between bread with tarter sauce and lettuce for a fancy fish sammy.

My family absolutely loved this! Even my little one who swears she hates halibut. I used halibut that I had cooked in the crock pot with mango salsa the night before and this added a wonderful e...

LOVED this..i used Cod..had to use butter on my hands not flour...but they were a hit for my picky boyfriend! Thanks!!

The cook times took a little longer for me, maybe due to the type of potato or thickness of fish. To help the messiness, after forming the patty, I used a spatula to carry & flip the patties in...

Big hit with my whole family. Very yummy. I added some bread crumbs to the fish mixture before making patties. This helped firm up the mix and made it less messy. Also increased the nutmeg and W...

This is so so good. Even my picky 2-year old ate it. We made our own seasoned bread crumbs and used our left over salmon. It's messy, but thanks to the previous reviews, I was prepared.

I think you could very easily spice up the flavor with a few extra ingredients but you can't do much about the texture without a major recipe overhaul. For those of you who do like these, try m...
