I opened 2 large cans of pink salmon, added 2 large mashed potatoes, salt and pepper and tarragon, heated up the corn oil till very hot and my fish cakes just fried into a mush. There was some crispy bits but the cakes came away from them.
They formed into perfect cakes prior to frying so I do not think they were too wet. Should I have added breadcrumbs or matzoh meal? What went wrong?
