These sesame ginger fish cakes have a clean, fresh flavor filled with ginger, cilantro, garlic, sesame and lime. Try out these out for a new treat.
Start by peeling the skin off of the fresh ginger and chopping it into a few chunks. Do the same with the shallot and peel the garlic also. Zest 1 lime.
Throw the ginger, shallot, garlic, cilantro and lime zest into a food processor. Squeeze in the juice of the zested lime and pulse the ingredients until everything is chopped up well.
Add in the fish sauce, 1 tbsp of the sesame seeds, paprika and arrowroot flour and pulse everything quickly until it is mixed together well and you don't have any bigger chunks of fish left. Don't process it too long, you want just a quick chop to get everything chopped and mixed.
Next, form the fish mixture into medium sized patties with your hands. If it feels like there is excess moisture in the mixture squeeze it out a little while you form the patties.
Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to absorb any excess oil. Sprinkle with paprika and serve with lime wedges. Squeeze the lime over your fish cake prior to eating. Enjoy!
