Fragrant, sweet, sour, salty AND spicy, these Thai fish cakes are a mouthwatering use of Lo-Dough in its crumb form. The calories and carbs are low as ever, but you wouldn't know it from the flavour. Also, thanks to Lo-Dough's incredible high fibre content, something that would normally be served as a starter, becomes a light but filling meal. They are incredibly simple to make too, using a few simple ingredients and taking no longer the 5 minutes to cook.

  1. Add your all the ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Form into three small cakes.
  2. Oil a pan with the fry-light and on a medium heat, fry the cakes for approx. 3 minutes on each side.
  3. Serve with sides of your choice. We think sweet chilli and soy are a must, plus homemade pickled carrots, salad and more coriander.
