Yuca Fish Patties

Yuca Fish Patties
Recipe type: Seafood
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 6
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 green onion, chopped fine
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • 1 lb cooked flaky fish (not oily fish)
  • 1 cup cooked smashed yuca
  • ¼ cup bread crumbs
  • ½ tsp yellow or brown prepared mustard
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • sprinkle red pepper flakes
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro leaves
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  1. Get out a skillet and put over low heat. Add the oil, green onion, and garlic and cook just until onion softens slightly and garlic is fragrant; remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the fish, yuca, bread crumbs, mustard, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt, black pepper, and cilantro; blend with a fork until combined, then add the egg and onion/garlic, and mix until incorporated.
  3. Form into patties and set aside while you prepare a skillet.
  4. Get out a large heavy skillet and put over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil enough to come up to ⅛ inch in skillet. When hot, carefully add the patties a few at a time and cook until browned on both sides. This should take only a few minutes on each side.
  5. Remove and let cool slightly before serving. May serve alongside a salad or in a bun like you would a burger. Top with guacamole, salsa, or sour cream if you wish.
