Viskoesjes- Dutch Fish Cakes
Originally uploaded by Lakenvelder.

These are an important part of the Duch diet. They can be made from left over fish or fresh fish. The best fish has a firm flesh and little bone. I made these cakes with cannned salmon. In you do not have rusks you can use light breadcrumbs.

1 pound fish
3-4 Tablespoon parsley
3 Tablespoons butter (i used a low fat margarine)
1 medium onion
2 eggs
6 Dutch Rusks, crushed
1/2 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon each salt, pepper, nutmeg and allspice

Clean fish and boil until tender. Seperate fish from bones and place in a large bowl. Fry parsley in butter and add fish , onion, eggs, rusk and milk. Add spices and mix well. Shape into round cakes and fry in margarine in a hot skillet unti brown on both sides.

Cakes can be eaten either hot or cold and served with fried potatoes and salad or as a sandwich for lunch.
