THAI FISH CAKES Recipe | Bart’s Fish Tales

Thai fish cakes! I first got introduced to them when I was in Ko Chang in Thailand, and I love them ever since. The great homemade spicy curry paste together with the fresh fish and zingy lime leaves and juice is just an incredible combination. This is Thailand!

Today I’m using fresh hake from my fishermen friend Alan from Cornwall, he goes out every morning to catch the most beautiful sustainable fish! Hake is a fish that is not that popular, but it is a great twist on cod or haddock, I can assure you will enjoy it!

Sounds sooooooo good! My mum gave me the curry paste she had bought (too hot for her, haha). It won’t tastes as good and fresh but I must give it a try!

Love the colours in this dish, going to have to make it to find out what it taste like, could really do with the book as a reference, any news yet when it will be released here. I don’t remember seeing hake anywhere here before, couple of places to have a look. Your friend in Cornwall, any plans to make a video there, one of the wonderful coastal places of our country. Thank You Bart

Hello Bart, can I use dory instead? and where can I get your book?

Daniel Dubeau Essa says:

That must have been spicy! 3 chilies in the paste, half a chili added in the cake base and then another half to garnish! haha I’d turn down the spice but lovely recipe I will definitely make this! beautiful color on the fish cakes well done!

Looks nothing like the actual Thai fish cakes (believe they deep fry them?), but looks amazing nonetheless.

Hi Bart! Tried your recipe last night, Flavors were great but had a bit of trouble with the fish cakes breaking up in the pan, do you have any suggestions to stop this? I thought adding some more breadcrumbs to the mix would of helped but It was too late!

Bart, if you do not have peanut oil, would coconut oil be a good replacement, or is the peanut also to add flavour?
