This is a prequel to my post in February on Homemade Fish Cakes.  Here are some shots of my mother making fishcakes from scratch.

The Yellowtail is our choice of fish for making fish cakes

First, fillet the fish

Then remove the flesh from the skin

Mince the meat.  Add salt water a tablespoon at a time as you mince. 
Keep going.  It'll come together in a cohesive mass.

Watch it transform:

Now, pick it up at smack it on the chopping board for about 10 - 15 minutes

Do you see it?  Nice and jiggly

Wet your hands and shape them into fish cakes

You can now fry the fish cakes.

Steph, you're so smart! My mother always buys the biggest Yellowtail she can find.
