Catfish Cakes are taking the spotlight. These economical fish cakes will not replace the famous crab cakes we love, but they are tasty and nice for a change.

One pound of catfish is quickly cooked and cooled then it is mixed with mashed potatoes, sautéed vegetables and shaped into patties.

The patties can be browned and heated in a skillet or baked in the oven.

This recipe makes 6 small patties but you can increase it easily to serve more people.
