Serves 4

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup fresh white bread, crust removed
  • 1⅓ lbs (approx. 1½  cups) spot prawns, shelled and coarsely chopped
  • 9 ounces salmon fillet, fat removed and coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup cream cheese, softened
  • 3 green onions, minced
  • juice from ½ lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cups panko
  • vegetable oil
  • Kaffir Lemongrass Sauce (recipe included)

Method:

  1. Place fresh bread slices in food processor and pulse into soft breadcrumbs (not too fine). Mix spot prawns, salmon, mayonnaise, cream cheese, green onions, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add breadcrumbs, mix gently and season.
  2. Spread half of panko on a small tray and place ¼ of fish cake mixture into a round food ring, or form into patty shape. Pat fish cakes into panko, sprinkle remaining panko on top of fish cakes. Repeat to create a total of 4 fish cakes.
  3. Preheat a pan with a splash of vegetable oil to cover bottom; cook fish cakes until light golden and internal temperature reaches 122 degrees F (50 degrees C). Remove to tea towel and keep warm until ready to serve.
