Delicious combination of seasonings

I was looking to spice up my Mealmart gefilte fish loaf for Shabbos and adapted this recipe. I thawed the fish loaf and mixed in 1/2 cup bread crumbs (the loaf already has matzo meal in it). I sauteed the onion and added twice the amount (because the fish loaf is roughly twice the amount of fish called for in the recipe) of the other ingredients--except the oil and salt. I mixed this onion mixture plus the two eggs into the fish. With a 1/4 cup measure I scooped out the fish mixture, and formed it into patties. I covered the patties with more breadcrumbs and placed them on a cookie sheet that had been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. I had 13 patties. I sprayed the patties with non-stick cooking spray and put them in a 450 degree preheated oven for 20 minutes. I love the combination of spices--it's really good. I think next time I will try cooking them a few minutes less, though. They browned a bit too much for me. Thanks, Beutiful, for the inspiration!
