Thai fish balls
Really tasty Thai inspired fish balls which make for a lovely light supper.

500g firm white fish fillets

1 tsp Thai red curry paste

½ tsp grated lime zest

½ tsp fish sauce

3 shallots, diced

1 tbsp vegetable oil

Sweet chilli sauce, to serve

1 lime, sliced

Bunch coriander leaves

Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4.

Place the fish, curry paste, sugar, lime zest and fish sauce into a food processor and pulse until a rough paste has formed.

Transfer fish mixture to a bowl and stir in the shallots.

Roll 1 tablespoon of the fish mixture into a ball and place on to a plate. Continue with the rest of the fish mixture.

Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the fish balls and cook, turning often, for 5 minutes. Transfer to a baking tray and repeat with the remaining fish balls.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Serve with lime, coriander and sweet chilli sauce.

Add a side of noodles for a more filling meal.
