Potato Fishcakes... from leftovers

Potato Fishcakes

It is the day before grocery day! In the refrigerator, I had some leftovers;
Baked tilapia fillets with (somewhat soggy) Panko crumb breading
Garlic mashed potatoes
Celery (because my hubby can't walk through the produce section without buying celery.)
Onions (sweet onions that are going soft quickly!)
Seasonings (Curry powder, garlic granules, salt, red pepper) (Technically, these were not in the fridge)
I flaked up three tilapia fillets (Already cooked!) in a bowl. I added 3/4 cup of garlic mashed potatoes, 1/4 cup each of minced celery and onion, and seasoning. I beat 2 eggs, and stirred all this up with the mixture. If my fish had not already been breaded, I would of added flour, or cracker crumbs to the mixture to hep bind it.
I heated my cast iron skillet and melted just a bit of (coconut) oil on it, then drop large spoonfuls of my mixture onto the hot skillet, and flattened it a bit. I let the patties/ cakes brown on one side, turned them, and cooked until they were brown on both sides and hot throughout.
Mr C ate his on bread, with salsa. It would be good with leftover cocktail sauce, or tartar sauce. Served with coleslaw. (He ate two sandwiches, and yet another patty by itself. For one of my 'creations', he seemed to really like it!)
