Fish cakes are made of boneless fish that is blended with aromatics, shaped into patties, and fried. It’s an easy process, especially with a food processor rather than the traditional mortar and pestle. Fish cakes can be served as an appetizer, or else sliced and dressed for a salad (Fish Cake Salad with Shaved Cabbage). The paste can also be shaped into small round fish balls, which once boiled are perfect as appetizers or as an addition to noodle soups.<
