“These are delicious and versatile. These are traditional in the Danish Mock Turtle soup. Serve them as an appetizer with a dip or make it as a fish loaf. Any way it is good In one of the pictures you will see that I made a sauce and fried them - these went over really well. They are wonderful in a curry sauce”
