Recipe: Thai Fish Cakes

These Thai fish cakes are simple to make and full of exotic flavours. Serve with sweet chilli dipping sauce and lime wedges as a starter. Have a bowl of water handy when forming the fish cakes as this stops the mixture from sticking to your fingers.

1 egg
1 heaped tsp Mai Siam Red Curry Paste
