    1 pound tilapia or any firm white fish

    1 (12 oz) can or bottle light beer

    1½ cups (2½ oz) crushed reduced-fat potato chips, such as Baked Lays

    ½ cup scallions, chopped

    1 egg, I like using Eggland’s Best eggs

    ¼ cup malt vinegar or cider vinegar

    1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped

    1 teaspoon Dijon or yellow mustard

    ½ teaspoon salt

    Fresh ground pepper, to taste


1. In large pan, add fish and beer. Poach over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Turn fish over and continue to poach about 2-3 minutes until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove to a plate and discard liquid.

2. In a food processor, add fish, potato chips, scallions, egg, vinegar, garlic, mustard, salt and pepper. Pulse until minced and blended.

3. Using ¼ cup measure, scoop to make 12 cakes. Each cake will be slightly smaller than the full measuring cup. Shape into ½ inch thick patties.

4. Coat a large nonstick pan with cooking spray. Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in pan. Add all patties and cook over medium heat about 2 minutes per side until golden brown. Alternately, you can put them on a baking sheet, spray with cooking spray and broil on either side.
