Easy Thai Salmon Fishcakes With Asian Noodles From Cook With Kids

  • Serves: 6-8
  • Preparation time: 20 minutes


The fresh flavours in these fishcakes make them a favourite with the whole family, and the salmon is packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids which are good during pregnancy and for your baby

  1. Put the salmon into a large bowl and then add the chilli (if using), coriander, ginger, garlic puree and cornflower and gently mix together.
  2. Add the lime juice and zest, then the egg and combine with the fish and spice mixture. Season if necessary. You should end up with a wet, spoonable mixture.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan and spoon dollops of the fishcake mixture into it. You can make them as little or large as you like.
  4. Meanwhile, boil the noodles in a large saucepan then drain once cooked. Heat the sesame oil in a wok and add the noodles, spring onions, coriander and fresh lime juice and zest and stir-fry everything together, seasoning if necessary.
  5. Tip the noodles onto a large serving plate and put the fishcakes on top. Serve with soy sauce.
