Under the Sea

Cooking seafood can sometimes be a little tricky. You can’t overcook it and sometimes you may end up undercooking it too. If you’re like the most of us, it can get you feeling rather anxious because it’s a hit or a miss.

Now, after several attempts, there is one way to enjoy seafood without having to worry about its texture. All you’ll need to do is to turn them into ‘cakes’! These savoury seafood cakes are easy to make. Plus, you’ll need to mix all ingredients in one bowl and that would mean less dishes to wash!

So, here are two simple seafood cake recipes for you to prepare for your family.
