This is a very simple and famous fish cake Ojibwe recipe. For this recipe use cooked and boned fish. In the authentic Ojibwe recipe use fish from Minnesota streams or Lake Superior.
Long a staple of the Ojibway diet, pieces or chunks of fish is also traditionally boiled or poached in seasoned water.
You can take any fish for this recipe. I love trout or pike perch fish cake.
Please make sure you get all the bones from the fish.
If you want more dietary fish cakes – you can not fry them, but bake them in the oven. However, they roasted them. It was both an everyday and festive dish. Usually, this dish was prepared in the winter.
Variation: Fry cakes in bacon fat for added flavor.
