I made some fish cakes about 6 weeks ago (cooked fish, potatoes, egg mainly). I froze the leftovers (ie after forming but before pan-frying the fish cakes). When I thawed them this weekend, they were so waterlogged they fell apart before I could even cook them...straight to the garbage. Anyone know why this happened and how to prevent it? I waited till they cooled before wrapping them in saran wrap and into a ziploc. Should i fry them next time before freezing?
