All through South East Asia as well as in India, little patties or cakes are made from minced sea food be it fish, prawns or a combination. These are most often served as a snack or an appetizer. They are so moreish I often tell myself I should have made more!! Three are never enough!!
When you make with fish, use any firm white fish fillets. I often buy a big pack of prawn meat offcuts from the freezer section and use the off cuts to make these cakes.
400g prawn meat
2 shallots, finely chopped
A handful of coriander leaves and tender stems, coarsely chopped
2 green chillies, chopped
1 tsp mayonnaise
