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.

These were amazingly easy to make and they fried well , keeping their shape. So quick and tasty, will def make again, we had them with chips though so not so healthy:-)

I used Harissa paste which worked really well. I didnt have any curry paste and didn't want to buy a whole tin. Any curry style paste works.
To make a simple paste which works nicely mix tomato purée/sauce with indian spices, chilli, salt, pepper and herbs.
Hope this helps!

Great burgers - added chilli to them as well and really tasty! Put lime in salad and rice vinegar and still good. Will definitely make again!

These were amazing, the best recipe I have found in a while, I love GF website. Served it for a dinner party starter... and should have made more! Used green paste as I prefer this to red. When asked for the recipe I was quite reluctant to give it, as it is so simple and quick and my cover of being a good cook would be blown!

These have a really good texture and held together well. I added spring onions as per previous suggestions and served with brown rice and broccoli - lovely!

These were fantastic! I had high hopes having read the reviews and I was ultimately satisfied. I scaled it up as I had an extra fillet. Very quick to make, only used a teardrop of oil (wasn't really needed), held together well and plenty of flavour. I added 2 spare spring onions. My joint favourite recipe from this site :)
