Thai fish cakes on quinoa

Serves 4

160 g snapper fillet, bones and skin removed

160 g salmon fillet, bones and skin removed

160 g peeled raw prawns

2 teaspoons chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)

3 teaspoons fish sauce

2 teaspoons sweet chilli sauce

3 egg whites

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

2 makrut (kaffir lime) leaves, shredded

zest and juice of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon avocado oil

100 g (½ cup) quinoa

zest and juice of ½ lemon

small handful fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves, chopped

Finely chop the snapper, salmon and prawns in a food processor. Add the coriander, fish sauce, chilli sauce, egg whites, garlic, lime leaves, lemon zest and juice and avocado oil. Mix together briefly. Shape into 8 patties.

Lightly oil a non-stick frying pan and cook the patties in batches for 3 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile, wash the quinoa in plenty of cold water and drain. Put in a saucepan with 250 ml of water. Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat, cover the pan and simmer for 10-12 minutes until all the water has been absorbed. Leave to stand for 5 minutes, and then mix with the lemon zest, juice and coriander. Serve the fish cakes on a bed of quinoa.

CHEF’S TIP: Quinoa is an old South American grain with the best amino acid profile of all the grains. It is available from health food stores.
