Thai Salmon Fishcakes

Thai salmon fish cakes

These spicy fishcakes are packed with flavour but make for a light and fresh meal when accompanied by the lightly pickled salad and garlic and soy broccoli. This quick dinner is sure to become a favourite supper in our house. Save your pennies: we used defrosted frozen salmon fillets which are a bit cheaper, and the tails rather than the fat end of the fillet work just as well given it is all blitzed up.

The Fishcakes

The Salad

The Broccoli


  • Put the salmon in a food processor with the curry paste, ginger, soy and chopped coriander. Pulse until roughly minced and combined. Shape the mixture into 4 small patties. Let the patties rest.
  • Prepare the salad by peeling strips of carrot and cucumber into a bowl. Toss with the vinegar, mirin and sesame oil, coating well. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over.
  • Steam the broccoli for 8 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then fry the burgers for 2-3 mins on each side, turning until crisp and cooked through. Toss the broccoli in the lemon, garlic and soy. Pop 2 stems on a plate with 2 burgers per person, and half of the salad, and a lemon wedge.
