After tasting this recipe, you'll think twice about discarding rough fish.
Fish patties make and excellent sandwich and the grinding eliminates all taste and feel of "Y" bones, commonly found in rough fish.

Tips:
Sucker fish flesh has a tendency to become more solid than canned fish when formed into patties.
To solve this problem, add a tablespoon or two of solid vegetable shortening(at room temperature, and a 1/4 cup cream style corn to each poubnd of fish hamburger. The corn should be ground with the fillets, and the shortening added to the fish after it is ground. The corn gives the patties a taste not unlike fried oysters.

You will find sucker (or mullet) flesh to be white, sweet, and very tasty as well as inexpensive compared to ocean fish.
