Thai Fish Cakes

Well we have safely made it over to France and are now eating croissants and cheese galore  Until I get my hands on a few French recipes though it’s fish cakes I share today.

Not to worry we have some apartment rentals coming up and with my mom visiting I’ll be cooking up a storm (with the quinoa she brought with her from the US), so stay tuned for some quinoa meals!

If you’re looking for appetizer recipes these fish cakes are perfect. As you can imagine it’s minced fish with a slew of Thai ingredients. Easy to make, perfectly crispy and delicious served with a light vinegary cucumber salad.

No need to order them at a restaurant when you can make them better at home yourself!
