“Wow! I made these for dinner last night and they were incredible! Simple, delicious, fast and healthy. The recipe comes from Real Simple magazine (June/July 2004), and I made it as written except that after pulverizing the bread (I used whole wheat since we don't "do" white bread in my house), I just added all the other ingredients to the food processor, too. This made it extremely simple. I am sure the fish was ground up more than the recipe intended, but we liked it that way. I cooked this in an indoor George Foreman-type grill, and they took about 6-7 minutes. The magazine suggests serving this on a bun and topping the patty with traditional cole slaw and dressing, but we had them as-is with some seafood sauce (and some steamed asparagus, a salad, and a Frozen Malibu Sunshine drink -- which I also just posted the recipe for). It would work equally well with any of your favorite condiments, and I think it would be awesome over some greens with a citrus vinaigrette or ranch dressing! I plan to make these a lot!!!”
