I make these all the time, they are a favourite of my 15 year old son. For his birthday party I made small bite size ones with a sweet chilli dip....they went down extremely well with everyone.

Added a lot of ginger which gave it a kick. The recipe didn't specify salt/pepper and I didn't add any but I will next time. Could you make this with salmon/tuna? Very nice though!!!

These are amazing!! So So tasty and easy to make. I used chicken thighs and probably more ginger. I also seasoned with salt and pepper, used a red chilli and used ground coriander. They went down a treat and even had for lunch the next day. I think they would make a great starter or smaller ones at a buffet on cocktail sticks as suggested.

These were lovely. I took the advice and added some breadcrumbs! I also used basil instead of the corriander as I didn't have any and they still tasted fab. Did them with some homemade potato wedges and homemade coleslaw, all very quick, easy and tasty.

In the end, these were very tasty but like a couple of other reviewers I had trouble with the texture. After blending, the mix was too moist to shape. I had to add some breadcrumbs and toss in flour to achieve a workable mix. After that though (and another addition of thai curry paste) they turned out lovely.
