Indian Seasoned Fish Cakes

When I found this Bonnie Stern Recipe inspired by a Vij Vikram recipe, owner of Vij’s modern Indian restaurant in Vancouver, I couldn’t resist trying it out.  I was at Vij’s in June, 2013 and I was so excited to have the chance to eat there.  In her book Friday Night Dinners Bonnie Stern shares […]

No-Crab Crab Cakes, No Kidding
