- Make sure the fish is well defrosted. Leaving it overnight in the fridge is best. It needs to be soft enough to work with.
- In a bowl, combine the fish, curry paste, fish or soy sauce, coriander stems, lemon or lime juice and the egg. If you have a food processor, use that that to blend everything up. If not, get in there with a fork or a potato masher and get it as fine a paste as you can.
- Add the corn flour and chopped green beans to mix and combine well.
- Heat the oil, in a pan, over a medium heat. 4-5 tbl should be fine depending on the pan you use.
- Take a tablespoon of the mix and lay it down on the oil. Fashion the fish cakes into 1.5-inch discs that are about 1 cm high.
- Fry the fish cakes in the oil till golden brown on each side. When finished, place them on paper towels to cool. Repeat till all the fish is cooked.
- Drain the water from the grated cucumber.
- Combine with the Sweet Chilli sauce and chopped coriander leaves. Set aside.
- Bowl up your rice, load up with fish cakes, drizzle with sauce, and you're ready to smash it!
