Family meals: easy fish cakes recipe

Fish Cakes can be so dull and boring. But thai Fish Cakes are FABULOUS! A classic bầu street food & my favourite starter at bầu restaurants along with Chicken Satay.

Surprisingly easy to make at home – all you need is fish, red curry paste, egg, rice flour và fish sauce. Blitz, make patties and pan fry!


Thai fish cakes

If I order an appetiser at a thai restaurant, 9 times out of 10 it will either be thai Fish Cakes or thai Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce.

And both of these are irritatingly pricey at bầu restaurants for what you get! $7 for 3 piddly little fish cakes or 3 teeny tiny skewers with a midget tub of peanut sauce.

Homemade is 80% cheaper – and just as good as takeout!

Thai Fish Cakes are (in my humble opinion) the most fabulous fish cakes in the world!


What thai Fish Cakes taste like

The main flavouring in thai Fish Cakes is red curry paste, so if you love bầu Red Curry, fish and food made to lớn be eaten with hands, then this has got your name written all over it!

The quality thing about these fish cakes is the texture. It’s lượt thích Asian fish balls, kind of spongey. I know that sounds thoroughly unappetising, to lớn say they are “spongey”, but there’s no other word I can think of!
