Vince is also a strong supporter of the Ocracoke Working Watermen's Association, and often provides fish cakes for events using an old family recipe. If you are not on the island for one of these events, you can still enjoy Ocracoke fish cakes. Just stop by the Fish House on Hwy 12, and pick up the main ingredient. Then follow Washie's recipe.
Washie Spencer’s recipe for Fishcakes:
- 12 fillets of fish (fresh catch of the day)
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup flour
- 2 cups diced onion
- 6 cubed potatoes
- Salt and pepper to taste
