If you enjoy eating fish, like I do, you may want to try these delicious fish cakes to vary your diet and get your Omega 3 fatty acids.

Swai (Basa), tilapia, cod fish can be used for this recipe.
I have switched to using a grapeseed oil more often lately. You may try it too.

Soak few slices of bread in cup of filtered water.
Peel and cut an onion in 8 to 10 wedges.
Cut fish in portions to prepare for grinder.
If you don’t have a meat grinder, you may finely chop fish and onion.

Get the bread out from water and press it to drain exces of water.
Process the prepared ingredients through the grinder.
(Or combine all ingredients together and process in foodprocesor )

Add salt, ground pepper, dill and mix well.

With wet hands form the mixture into patties,

coat each with bread crumbs.

Warm the skillet on medium-high heat, add 3-4 table spoons of oil.  Let the oil sizzle, then place prepared patties in the skillet.

Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side.

Welcome To My Blog!

Hi, my name is Olga.  I would like to welcome you to my site.

I created it first of all, to save my family’s recipes and then to share them with my friends and those who have tasted some Russian/Ukrainian food and liked it. But I also would like to introduce it to those who haven’t yet, but would like to.

I will try to keep my recipes simple, but there are few that might require more prep time or ingredients for preparation. You will also find some of my family’s favorite American recipes here and other international cuisines.

I thank you for visiting my site. I hope you will fall in love with Russian/Ukrainian food and will come back again.
