My husband, his father, his brothers and nephews went fishing on a charter in the Northern Territory. This was the recipe of the cook on board for Thai fishcakes. They all came home raving about this. Not all ingredients had measures so I have approximated. This is Alfredo's recipe - Alfredo was a native of Papua New Guinea. Time does not include 1/2 hour chilling time.

  • 250 g long beans, sliced 1/2 cm pieces
