Thai Fish Cakes

These low fat fish cakes are so healthy and amazingly tasty. You will throw them together in a few minutes and can use any white fish.

You don’t even have to make a dip as you can use sweet chilli sauce or so what I did (though they won’t be as low fat) and throw together a sweet chilli mayonnaise by mixing 1 part sweet chilli sauce to 3 parts mayonnaise. I am also using a Sweet Soya Bean Sauce (Kicap Lemak Manis) as a dip which can be tough to find. I got mine in an Asian store in Clonakilty. It can be a little pricey as well, a lot more so if you manage to find it in a supermarket.

For a gluten free version check the labels of the sauces and use Gram Flour instead of flour to coat them.



Allergens : Gluten & Lactose Free Methods Included

White fish like Cod or Hake – 450g Skin off, Pin bones removed

Soy Sauce – 1 tsp

Ginger – 1/2 inch piece

Garlic Cloves – 1

Fresh Coriander – Small handful

Fish Sauce – 1 tsp

Lemongrass – 1/2 inch piece

Red Chilli – 1/4 or more to taste if you like it hot

Prawn & Chilli Paste (Asian store, Optional) – 1 tsp I left the chilli out in favour of this

Red Curry Paste (optional) – 2 tsp, leave the chilli and prawn paste out if using this

Flour or Gram Flour – 50g

Sweet Chilli Sauce to dip



Gettting ready..

You will need – 1 Food Processor, 1 frying pan, 1 baking tray, baking parchment, fish slice


Pre-heat your oven to 180C or GM 4


Stick everything in the food processor and blend to a paste.


Using your hands, form into 6 – 8 balls then press down to form a disc.


Heat the oil on a pan, then gently roll each fish cake in the flour and place on the pan. You can shape them again once rolled in the flour, it is actually easier to shape them this way.


Pan fry on each side for 1 minute or until slightly browned.


Place on the baking parchment lined baking tray and cook in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes depending on how thick you made them.


Serve with crispy lettuce leaves and a sweet chilli dip.

    Sounds yum! Can I skip the frying part and straight into oven for extra healthy option?

    1. No, you need to seal them on the pan first or they will fall apart.

    What temperature should the oven be at? Unless I have totally missed it

    1. Pre-heat your oven to 180C or GM 4.
      My apologies, we left out that step in the move from the old site when we copied the recipe over.
      I have edited it now to include the step. Thank you for pointing it out to me.
