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
