Fish cakes had lovely Thai flavour. I added a couple of potatoes to mine to make them go further. Salad was beautiful, I did my dressing with sushi vinegar and a little cold water. Delicious .

Just tried these for the first time as part of my 5:2 Intermittent Fasting diet and they are definitely a winner. I made the meal including the salad to be 336 calories. As other people have said, as well as being really tasty, these hold together really well in the pan. I chose to make 2 thin cakes per person as I wanted them more crunchy.

These burgers are very easy to make and full of flavour - they are much lighter than a heavy fish cake. We loved the fresh Thai flavours. I didn't make the salad but instead served with roasted sweet potato, steamed veg and sweet chilli sauce.

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 !
