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 nice!

I served the fish cakes with potato wedges and the salad. I was a bit dubious about the salad, but as everyone had raved about it, thought I'd give it a go. It's pretty good! Nice fresh flavours and the vinegar isn't at all as overpowering as I'd feared.

I'd make these again for sure.

Everyone loved these, even my junk food loving 3 year old!! Will definitely be making these on a weekly basis.

Quick, easy, and tasty. Used dried coriander and ginger as had no fresh, and mild curry paste as don't like things too hot. Very tasty, although we blended it for too long in the food processor so the texture was a bit too smooth! The salad was simple, quick and yummy too.

Fab recipe - great flavour with ginger and thai paste even for someone who isn't that keen on ginger.... We added a small pot of brown crab meat which worked really well. Definitely do again.

Loved these- they fry up really easily, in fact I used cooking spray instead of vegetable oil. Next time I'm going to add some sweet chilli sauce to the mixture just to sweeten it a little.

Prepared this for dinner tonight - my first recipe from Good Food!! Absolutely gorgeous although I went a bit light on the thai paste as the boys don't like their food too spicy - could have gone the full two spoons as they loved it.
Prepared a bit extra ribbon salad - never known my hubby ask for extra helpings of salad. Trouble is - need to find something as good for tomorrow - here goes

Used green thai paste as that's what I had - truly wonderful and so easy to make! Definitely will be a favourite in my house!

These are fantastic! We love them in our house and everyone I serve them too loves them as well.
To make it a little cheaper I use smoked salmon (budget stuff or trimmings), about 400 grams and to bulk it out I add a good shake of rice crumbs (for gluten free) or breadcrumbs (straight from a box). They still taste delish and are now a little kinder on your pocket :-)

Tried this for the first time last night but used tai green chilli paste as my daughter doesn't like it too hot - came out really tasty but nowhere near hot enough. Red chilli (and more of it) for me next time. Good recipe though.

Great recipe. Very simple to prepare (my 4yr old pretty much did him himself) and really tasty. I used green paste as it wasnt so spicy and all the family really enjoyed them.

Delicious, hubby loved them too. Made these the night before and dinner was ready in 10 mins the next day, perfect. Was worried they were going to be too hot with the curry paste but they were not hot at all. The mixture was quite runny but did hold together fine in the pan. Will definitely do these again!

Really delicious burgers, but didn't hold together when cooking, which was disappointing.

These are yum!!! I was a bit dubious when I got the mixture out of the food processor as didn't think it would form into fishcakes I was not disappointed and they were fine. Had them which thai rice, stir fried veg and thai chilli dipping sauce. Fab!
