Stanley’s never taste the same! So do not worry if yours doesn’t either. Play around and use what ever is in the cupboard, even tinned sardines/smoked mussels can be added to the mixture if your fresh fish is not enough. Experiment with the flavors, replace the curry paste with pesto and use oregano as your herb and serve it with a tomato sauce. The cakes size is also up to you. It really depends on you, if it’s for a snack make small balls and deep fry them served with a dip. For a fish burger, make them the size of your bread rolls, shallow fry them and layer with mayo and some salad goodies for an open or closed burger. As a meal, size does not really matter, as long as you enjoy them with a sauce or a salsa and some mash potatoes.
