How to Cook

  1. Place fish in a food processor and pulse until it breaks into small pieces. Add ginger, lime zest, coriander leaves, spring onions, cornflour, salt, Gregg’s Lemongrass Powder, Wattie’s Creations Sweet Chilli Sauce and egg white. Pulse to combine ingredients.
  2. Form mixture into 8 cakes. Having wet hands will make this easier. Place on a tray lined with baking paper. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan. Cook fish cakes over a low heat for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden and hot. Serve with the Mixed Vegetable and peanut salad and extra chilli sauce on the side.
  4. To make the Salad. Place salad mix, coriander and mint leaves in a bowl. Add peanuts. Whisk together Wattie’s Creations Sweet Chilli Sauce, sesame oil and lime juice and toss through the salad.
