Thai Style Crab and Prawn Cakes
This is the other recipe I tagged for the game that I play on zaar. We had this as a starter before the the Thai green fish curry. It made for a fabulous meal and one that I have saved into my favourites to be enjoyed again and again. I use slightly more curry paste than listed but I had more crab meat and prawns than listed, I also used large green prawns chopped very small as this is what I had on hand. As well as adding the breadcrumbs to the mix I also patted some panko flakes onto the outside of the cakes to give them a nice crispy coating on the outside.

4 Teaspoons lime juice
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
Fresh ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons oil (or maybe a little more)


1. Mix all ingredients together well.

2. Shape into 8 cakes.

3. Heat the oil over medium heat and fry the cakes until cooked and golden on one side (about 5 minutes).

4. Turn over and cook for another couple of minutes or until cooked right through.

Serve at once with a wedge of lime on the side.

Green Curry Chicken Meatballs
This is another recipe by a zaar member, I have not made many this month so I thought I best make some before we are in May. I still have a few of my own recipes in hand so I will try and get round to posting a few over the weekend. I have been so busy lately setting up my new business that I have not had as much time to devote to this. But once my website is up and running I will have loads more time.

This recipe was really easy to make, makes for a great party food and tastes wonderful, if you want to see the original recipe or see other recipes by this chef please click here.


500g Ground chicken
1 Small onion, grated
1/4 Cup green curry paste (Aussies, I like Valcom)
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
1 Egg, beaten
1/3 Cup dried breadcrumb
Salt and pepper
Vegetable oil (for deep frying)


1. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except oil together using your (clean) hands.

2. With damp hands, roll about 2 teaspoons of mix into a bowl; place on a large plate, cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.

3. Fill a wok or saucepan 1/3 full with oil: heat over medium heat until hot.

4. Cook chicken balls 4-5 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

5. Drain on kitchen paper.

6. Allow the oil to come back to temperature before continuing with another batch.

I served mine with a homemade chili dipping sauce.
