Thai fishcakes with stir fry noodles

About This Recipe

Ingredients

2 large salmon fillets, skinned and cut into 1cm cubes
1 tsp red curry paste
Finely grated rind of 1 lime
1 stalk of lemongrass, trimmed and finely chopped
1 red chilli, finely chopped
3 kaffir lime leaves, shredded
1 egg white
2 layers of rice or egg noodles*
2 inches of root ginger, peeled and chopped into matchsticks
2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
1 packet of stir fry vegetables**, sliced if necessary
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp white wine vinegar

Instructions

  1. Combine the fish, red curry paste, lime rind, lemongrass, chilli, kaffir lime and egg white in a bowl and mix well, then shape into four evenly-sized patties.
  2. Cook the noodles according to the instructions, then rinse under cold water and drain.
  3. Heat a griddle or frying pan, using a little stir fry oil if necessary, and cook the fishcakes on a high heat for 1-2 minutes on each side. Set aside under a bowl to keep warm.
  4. Add a little stir fry oil to the pan and cook the ginger, garlic and vegetables on a high heat, stirring continuously, for 2 minutes. Add the noodles and cook for another minute. Mix the soy sauce and vinegar and add to the pan, cooking for another minute before removing from the heat.
  5. Serve immediately with slices of the lime on the side.

* For a gluten-free meal, be sure to use rice noodles, rather than egg noodles.
**I often buy a stir fry ‘medley‘ containing spring onions, baby corn, sugarsnap peas and broccoli, but any combination of vegetables will do.
