Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 11 minutes
1 pound Tilapia filet chopped very small (I use local caught white grunts)
1/4 cup green or red sweet pepper chopped small
1/4 cup celery chopped fine
1/4 cup(s) of onion chopped fine
2 tablespoon cilantro chopped
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoon Old bay seasoning
3/4 cup Ritz crackers crushed fine
1/2 cup flour
2 cups canola oil
Put oil in a pan and heat to 375 degrees.
In a separate bowl add flour and the remaining 1 tsp of old bay seasoning mix.
Chopped fish, celery, pepper, onion and cilantro add to a mixing bowl., Next add mustard, egg, sea salt, pepper, remaining teaspoon old bay seasoning and the Ritz crushed crackers mix all well.
With a cookie scoop form 16 cakes. Pat each down to a patty gently coating each with flour mixture and place in oil and fry 6 minutes turn and fry an additional 5 minutes they will be a golden color. On a plate with lined with paper towel put fried fish cakes to drain some of the excess oil. Serve with your favorite ramoulade, tartar sauce or mango salsa.Bon Appetit!
