Thai Red Curry Fishcakes Recipe

 Ingredients

  • 500g firm white fish fillets (skinless, pin-boned and cut into chunks)
  • 3 tablespoons Indomex Thai Red Curry Paste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (or juice of ½ a lime)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup rice flour, tapioca flour or Maizena (corn starch)
  • ½ cup finely diced green beans
  • 4 tablespoons sunflower or canola oil

Method

  1. Place fish, Thai Red Curry Paste, Coriander, fish sauce, lime juice and eggs into a food processor and whizz until the fish is minced and all ingredients well combined
  2. Transfer to a bowl and add the flour and green beans – mix well until flour is incorporated
  3. Roll mixture into balls, before flattening into patties (approx. 1cm thick)
  4. Heat oil in pan and cook patties until golden brown (approx. 2 minutes) and then turn and cook other side until golden brown (approx. 2 minutes) – make sure oil is hot before adding fish patties and don’t turn too early as they will disintegrate – transfer to a paper towel to absorb excess oil (I usually can’t resist snacking on a piping hot fishcake while I finish frying the others)
  5. Once all fishcakes are ready, top with chopped coriander and serve with Indomex Sweet Chilli Sauce and lime wedges

Delicious as a snack, starter or light dinner – if you want to make this a little more substantial meal you can add potato wedges, a side of Jasmine Rice or a zingy Asian Slaw Salad
