Barramundi Fish Cakes with Jalapeno and Lime Dressing

Barramundi Fish Cakes with Jalapeno and Lime Dressing

When its blistering hot outside, any fish is a winner for me. Quite often we are all at a holiday house where fishing is on top of the list for the men and barramundi is often brought home to be on the menu. I love to make fish cakes with coriander chilli and limes, an ever so light and delicious dish.
