Cut the fish into small pieces. Place the pepper, chillies, coriander, spring onions, garlic, lemongrass, cocnut milk, soy sauce and fish sauce into a food processor and blend to a paste.
Add the fish pieces and egg to the paste and blend well.
Shape the mix into small cakes and place on a tray lined with baking parchment.
Cover with clingfilm and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
When ready to cook half -fill a heavy-based frying pan with the oil and heat over a medium to high heat.
Carefully place the fish cakes into the hot oil. Fry until crisp and brown, turning once during cooking. Remove from the oil using a slotted spoon and set aside to drain on kitchen paper. You may have to do this in batches.
Serve with the cucumber pickle and sweet chilli dipping sauce.


You can spice these tasty little cakes up as much as you like. Just add more chilli if you wish!
