READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Zoe4782

This is one too good to keep to myself. It comes from a Tesco Herb of the Month promotion on coriander. It is a really nice and easy way to do fish cakes.

Perhaps in trying to make something special I failed because the flavor of the fish I used was too delicate. I used red snapper, and it was completely drowned out by the flavor of the coriander/cilantro. Other than using dried, rather than fresh bread crumbs, and adjusting the amount, I followed the recipe strictly. This would be a lot less trouble and might even taste better if you just used water-pack tuna or some other fish with a comparatively strong flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the cooked flaked fish into a bowl and add half of the breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, beaten egg, coriander, cayenne and salt.
  2. Mix everything lightly together and roll into 12 small balls, flatten slightly and then leave to stand for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Mix the sesame seeds with the remaining breadcrumbs.
  4. Brush the fish cakes lightly with milk and dip into the breadcrumb mixture.
  5. Melt the butter in a frying pan with the olive oil and cook the fish cakes for about 2 minutes on each side until golden and warmed through.
  6. Serve on a bed of salad leaves with sweet chilli sauce on the side.
