Thai Fish Cakes


These fish cakes are so good for you, so delicious and so easy.

You can use fresh fish instead of tinned if you prefer – minced coursely. Firm fish like snapper is best.


  • 1 ½ teaspoons of Urban Forager Vegetable Stock Concentrate
  • 1 x 415g tin of paramount red salmon- drained and mashed roughly
  • 3 spring onions- sliced thinly
  • ½  small bunch coriander-  roughly chopped
  • 3cm piece of fresh ginger- peeled and finely grated
  • 1 large red chilli- seeds removed and finely diced

If you’re like me and planning ahead is not your forte, you can get away with putting these in the fridge for 30 mins to firm up – they just won’t hold together as well as they would otherwise so be careful when you put them in the pan and when you flip them
