Serves 4
Total Time
35 Minutes
200g of closed cup mushrooms, finely chopped
1–2 red chillies, roughly chopped
4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
3cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
400g of haddock, skinned and boned
Zest of 1 lime
1 tbsp of Thai red curry paste

100g of green beans, finely sliced
10g of coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 tbsp of fish sauce
Vegetable oil
To Serve
Sweet chilli sauce
Chopped cucumber, spring onion & roasted peanuts
Step 1

Place the chilis, garlic and ginger into a food processor and blitz until finely chopped.

Step 2

Add the mushrooms, fish and lime zest into the food processor and blitz again to form a fine paste. Spoon into a large bowl.

Step 3

Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and mix together thoroughly.

Step 4

Line a large tray with greaseproof paper. Roll the mix into small, flat patties and place in the fridge. Leave to chill until required.

Step 5

While the fishcakes are in the fridge, mix together the sweet chilli sauce with the cucumber, spring onion and peanuts. Place in a serving dish.

Step 6

Heat some oil in a wok or large frying pan. Fry the fishcakes in batches for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Serve straight away with wedges of lime and a sprinkle of fresh coriander.
