Serves: 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes 

Ingredients: 
Fish Cakes:
450g firm boneless white fish (ling, snapper, flathead)
1 egg
5-7 string beans, sliced thinly 
1 Tbsp. Fresh ginger, grated
1 Garlic clove, crushed 
2 Tbsp. Red curry paste 
1 small red chilli, deseeded and chopped
1 small handful of coriander 
1/2 Lime, Juiced
1 Spring onion stalk, sliced thinly 
1 Tbsp. Fish sauce
Pinch of Salt & Pepper 

Noodle Salad: 
100g vermicelli noodles, uncooked
1 carrots, peeled in ribbions 
1 cup of purple cabbage, shredded
1 cucumber, peeled in ribbions 
1/2 red capsicum, sliced thinly 
5 mint leaves, roughly chopped
5/6 coriander sprigs, roughly chopped 

Dressing: 
1 tbsp. Sesame oil
1 tbsp lime, juiced
1 tbsp. Fish sauce 
2 tbsp. Soy sauce 

Directions: 

  1. Ensure to de-bone the fish, you don't want any bones in the fish cakes!
  2. In a large blender, add the all the ingredients under "fish cakes" and blend until all combined and its almost like a chunky paste.
  3. Cook noodles according to packet instructions. Drain well.
  4. Add carrots, cabbage, cucumber, coriander, mint, capsicum and cooked noodles into a large mixing bowl and mix throughly.
  5. Taking 2 tbsp of the fish mixture at a time, form small patties.
  6. On a large frying pan, splash a small amount of olive oil and cook each patty for 2 minutes on each side, or until completely cooked through.
  7. Dress the salad mixture with all ingredients under "dressing". Divide the salad mixture between 3-4 plates and add 2-3 fish cakes each.

    Tip: Avoid dressing the salad as it can become soggy! Save the dressing until you're about to eat :) 

I hope you absolutely love this - It's honestly one of my favourite meals to prep because they last for 3 days in the fridge! If you love this, Please come let me know over on Instagram or Facebook! Love, Leah x
