I love eating fishcakes in any form, especially when paired with different kinds of dips. Now, I tried making my tilapia version with store-bought apple cider vinegar and my homemade chili garlic oil. I enjoyed the combination of the sweetness and sourness of the apple cider vinegar, spiciness of the chilies, and the crunchiness of the vinegar. Learn how to make homemade tilapia fishcakes without frying. An absolutely delicious and healthy appetizer you can enjoy at home!

      Hello Pamela,

      I love Tilapia too. Most of the time we eat it as we can get fresh ones from my dad's fish farm. Try it, you will love it for sure!

      I love tilapia, and this recipe sounds delicious. I plan to try this recipe as we eat tilapia regularly, but I have not made fishcakes before. Thanks.

      Hi Bede,

      Tilapia is one of my favorites. I enjoy grilled tilapia with salsa on the side. If grilled over a charcoal, just have enough oil on both side to prevent it from sticking. In case you will cook it in a grilled pan, maybe you can dust some breadcrumbs on it so it will have crust.

      I eat tilapia about once a week. I will definitely try this recipe, though I think I might try them on the griddle instead of oven-baked. Thanks for the interesting recipe.
