      The cakes were so delicious, and made good appertizer. However, I think I need a binding ingredient since my cakes were falling apart when I tried to turn them over. I added a teaspoon of cornstarch to the second batch, and that really helped. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

      Good, really a 4 1/2 star, but they weren't that flavourful, I wimped out and didn't use all the curry paste as I wanted to taste more than heat. I couldn't seem to get them to brown at all, but I'd try them again.

      Very tasty Thai fish cakes, Pets. I used Dory fillets, Red Curry Paste (Gaeng Pet) for the Red Curry Paste and Nam Prik Nam Pla (Traditional Thai Sauce) for the dipping sauce. Yum!!!!
