Easy Fish Cakes

Here’s a dinner idea, quick and easy for when you do not have a lot of time in the evening.  Frozen fish fillets (after thawing, of course) work perfectly fine for this, no need for expensive varieties.

You'll need:

500g white fish fillet
6 large kaffir lime leaves, shredded
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 chopped lemongrass
1 tbsp red curry paste (without MSG)
1 egg
Coconut oil for frying

1. Blitz the fish in the food processor until it forms a paste.
2. Add all the other ingredients apart from oil. Blitz some more.
3. Form into patties and fry until brown on both sides.

Aromatic and light. Quick and healthy. Should be a regular on the paleo menu. Serve with paleo mayonnaise or a dip made equal parts fish sauce and lime with chopped chillies.
