Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Thai Fish Cakes on Brown Rice Salad

Rinse the brown rice, add it to a pot with plenty of cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 20-25 min or until it's tender with a slight bite

Once cooked, drain and run under cold water until cool

2 Thai Fish Cakes on Brown Rice Salad

Meanwhile, trim and roughly chop the spring onions  

Peel and roughly chop the garlic

Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and roughly chop (or grate) the ginger

Chop the smoked basa fillets into rough pieces

3 Thai Fish Cakes on Brown Rice Salad

Add the chopped basa, ginger, garlic, spring onion and panko breadcrumbs to a food processor with a pinch of salt and pepper

Blitz until smooth (Don't worry if it's a bit chunky)

4 Thai Fish Cakes on Brown Rice Salad

Divide the mix into 6 [12] portions

Shape each portion into a fish cake by squeezing together, rolling into a ball and then flattening into a patty

Turn the fish cakes in the black sesame seeds and press gently until the seeds stick

5 Thai Fish Cakes on Brown Rice Salad

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-low heat

Once hot, add the fish cakes and cook on each side for 3-4 min or until golden and crispy

Tip: try not to fiddle with the fish cakes in the pan while they cook, so they hold their shape

Another tip: Keep the heat low or they'll burn, but not cook through!

 

6 Thai Fish Cakes on Brown Rice Salad

Meanwhile, peel and grate the carrot[s] 

Dice the cucumber finely

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

Slice the lime[s] into wedges 

Combine the soy sauce, honey and the juice of half the lime[s]  this is your Thai dressing 

7 Thai Fish Cakes on Brown Rice Salad

Add the grated carrot, diced cucumber, drained brown rice, chopped chilli (Can't handle the heat? Go easy?) and Thai dressing to a large bowl and give everything a good old mix up this is your brown rice salad
