Serving Suggestions


  • Simple fast and delicious, these Thai fish cakes were ready in a flash and packed full of authentic Thai flavours. They were so much easier to make than I thought!
  • Get yourself some kitchen gloves to form those patties otherwise your hands will smell a bit fishy for a while.
  • You can increase the chopped chilli to turn up the heat or omit it altogether for the little ones.
