Method

  1. Tip the salmon into a food processor with the paste, ginger, soy and chopped coriander. Pulse until roughly minced. Tip out the mix and shape into 4 burgers. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then fry the burgers for 4-5 mins on each side, turning until crisp and cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, use a swivel peeler to peel strips of carrot and cucumber into a bowl. Toss with the vinegar and sugar until the sugar has dissolved, then toss through the coriander leaves. Divide the salad between 4 plates. Serve with the burgers and rice.

Very yummy. Grilling them is definitely better if you are willing to be patient ( in my opinion) also added some spring onion and chillies to the mix for extra flavour. Served with homemade tzatziki. Winner

This is a delicious recipe! But I did some changes: didn't have red curry paste, used the green one instead. I think that gives it a more sweet flavor, and only used half of the amount.
Also I made two burgers per each amount of salmon, so easily doubles with same amount of ingredients if you want to serve smaller portions.

Have always failed at fishcakes in the past but these are delish and easy. Use a pastry ring to fill and you will have perfect cakes. The entire recipe is clean, filling, healthy and yummy. Have made twice this week !

An excellent recipe spoiled only by being only able to get Tesco's own Red curry Paste, which doesn't come close to the real McCoy. It was still very good, but a bit of a let down. Lessons will be learnt!

Cooked this for a picnic with my boyfriend, and we loved them! Was a bit iffy about using the curry paste and so substituted it with tomato paste, and it feels like we missed out =( Will definitely muster up the courage to try it next time!

One of the most amazing dishes I have ever prepared. Also highly recommendable when starting of a relaxing evening à deux.

Goes beautifully with Sauvignon Blanc.

I usually leave out the rice and serve thin and crispy burgers on the salad and decorate with a little crema di balsamico and some left over unpicked coriander. Impresses, is healthy and tastes fabulous.

My wife asks me to make this at least once a week!! :)

Myself and my hubby decided we wanted to start a healthier approach to eating and this was the first meal I prepared after our 'Healthy shopping trip' to the supermarket, we absolutely loved them, we did our own salad mixed with spring onions, peppers and cherry tomatoes also drizzled some balsamic vinegar over it instead of my usual Mayo!!!! Scrummy!!!!

Judy Ann - courgettes are called zucchini in the US I believe.

Yum .. stuck to the recipe and these were delicious with Salmon, can't wait to try them with Tuna as well. My hubby and I were so impressed with these we've said that we'd have them on a regular basis. The little salad is also lovely, but rather than rice I did some egg noodles in a sweet chilli sauce (which was a bit naughty but went REALLY well with it all!!).

The Thai salmon skewers sound great and I will be making the salmon burgers tomorrow; however, what are courgettes? I'm from Central Pennsylvania USA and I never heard of this. Thank you

Tasty stuff. Served with the salad and it went down a treat. Accidentally added double the amount soy sauce but it didn't seem to matter. Looking forward to having these again.

Oh my, this was lovely! And so easy. Served it with leaves and Thai-spiced potato salad. Be careful not to overcook the salmon, I reckon 1-2 minutes per side, max.

Wasn't sure this was going to work, mixture seemed very wet! Very tasty though, served with ribbon rice noodles & veg.

Made these last night for the first time and they were fantastic. The salmon remained beautifully soft and the flavours were lovely. We added lime juice over the top when serving. To accompany we made the BBCs 'Mango, rocket and red onion salad' but substituted the mint for coriander. Great combination. Will definitely be making again!

Did not like these at all. Salmon taste was totally overpowered by taste of curry and ginger. Far too oily also. Will not be giving this recipe a second chance.
