Asian fish cakes with dip!

Svenska här

To make fish cakes is an excellent way to use frozen fish! Frozen fish tends to be quite dry when you cook it and mixing it up with eggs and flavours hides this. I made me some fish cakes last week and since I still had half a bunch cilantro sitting in my kitchen I went with asian style flavours.

Thai food is all about balance between salty, sour a nd sweet, often with an addition of hot. The holy trinity in thai cooking is fish sauce, lemon/ lime and sugar.  Thai lemons are not like ours and there is no consensus in whether they are best substituted with our lemons or lime so do as you please, or use whatever is lying around the house.
