Thaw, drain, and wipe the fish. Then, cut into smaller pieces. Set aside Tip - it is very important that you don't have excess moisture in the fish or the mixture will be difficult to shape
In a food processor -pulse the fresh bread to make breadcrumbs – remove and set aside.
To the same food processor, add the onion, garlic, ginger, and cilantro/parsley. Pulse until minced. Then add the fish and pulse for another 2 to 3 minutes. Tip - Pulse into smaller bursts so you don't grind it to a smooth paste. You want to mix until you have some paste and some coarse for some texture.
Remove from the food processor into a mixing bowl. Then, add half the beaten egg and breadcrumbs. Combine. You should be able to shape the mixture into a patty. If necessary add more for the beaten egg.
Lastly, add cilantro/parsley, and season with salt and pepper.
Take about ¼ cup of the mixture and roll into a ball with your damp hands then flatten to make them flat.
Cook for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove and drain excess on a paper hand towel.
