Potato Crusted Mahi Mahi Corn Cakes

Tammy Brownlow


I was craving crab cakes but I didn't have any crab meat on hand. I decided to create a similar dish using Mahi Mahi. Instead of bread crumbs or flour I used dried corn bread crumbs. They turned out so great I just had to share them with y'all.

The hash brown potatoes add a nice crunch and wonderful flavor. Potato and fish go really well together so I thought I'd give it a try.

Any firm fish will work very well in this recipe. I hope you give it a try.
