Chatham Island Food Co - Blue Cod Thai Fish Cakes Recipe


Combine fish, egg, lime zest, coriander, Red Curry Paste or curry, fish sauce and sugar in a food processor and pulse 4 or 5 times to a coarse paste.

Heat a little oil in a heavy-based frypan and, working in batches, shallow-fry tablespoons of the mixture over a medium heat until springy to the touch and cooked through (about 2 minutes each side). They can be made a few hours in advance, chilled until needed and reheated in the oven for 5 minutes. 

These are lovely served with a dipping sauce - just mix a little sweet chilli and soy together. Enjoy!
