For the fish cakes

For the salad


  1. Put the salmon into a food processor with the egg, lemongrass paste, curry paste, fish sauce and lime leaves. Season with salt and pepper and blend until the mixture comes together but still has some texture. Transfer to a bowl and fold in the sliced beans. Cover and leave in the fridge until needed.

  2. To make the salad, mix together the carrot, cucumber, red onion, radishes, coriander and mixed leaves in a large bowl.

  3. Heat a large pan over a medium–high heat. Divide the fish cake mixture into eight equal-sized pieces and shape into patties. Spray a little oil into the pan and add four of the fish cakes, spacing them apart and flattening each one slightly. Cook for 2–3 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Set the cooked fish cakes aside on kitchen paper while you cook the remaining fish cakes.

  4. Add the rice vinegar and soy sauce to the salad and mix well. Divide between serving plates and add two fish cakes and a lime half to each plate. Serve straight away.

Recipe Tips

To freeze, place the uncooked patties on a tray lined with baking paper and freeze until firm, then pack into a zip-lock bag or container. Defrost fully in the fridge before cooking as per the recipe.
