Fried Tilapia Fish Cakes

Tilapia cakes are just as good, if not better than Tuna Cakes.  I think the texture is even closer to crab than Tuna can get so it’s even more of a plus for me.  Let’s get started shall we.


  • 1 Tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tsp Mustard
  • 2 Tsp Relish
  • 1 Tbsp Bread Crumbs Italian Seasoned
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Dill
  • 2 Tilapia Filets
  • 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tsp Olive Oil (Just for the pan for frying!!!)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Place the 2 tilapia filets on a small baking pan
  3. Hit them with the salt, pepper, and dill
  4. Toss them in the heated oven for 7-10 minutes until flaky
  5. Take them out of the Oven
  6. Toss them into a bowl
  7. Break them up with a wooden spoon until small and tuna from a can like
  8. Toss them in a fridge for about a half hour to an hour
  9. When they’re cold, mix them up with the remaining ingredients
  10. Pat them into small patties
  11. In a pan heat to medium high heat and add the oil
