MAKES 24 (12 of each flavour – easily doubled) PREP 20 mins COOK 15 mins EASY
2 spring onions, trimmed 400g skinless cod loin, cubed ¼ pack fresh coriander
1 large egg
2 tsp madras curry powder 1 tsp lemon juice
1 tbsp cornflour
1 tbsp ground almonds rapeseed oil, for frying
for the mango bites 12 chunks fresh ripe mango 3 thick slices of cucumber, quartered for the tomato bites 6 cherry tomatoes, halved 12 fresh coriander leaves you will need
24 cocktail sticks
1 Tip the spring onions into a food processor and pulse briefly to chop. Add all the remaining fishcake ingredients, except for the oil, and blitz to a paste. Shape into 24 mini cakes.
2 Heat a drizzle of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Fry half the fishcakes for 1-2 mins each side until firm and golden. Remove from the pan and repeat with the other fishcakes. Will keep in the fridge for up to two days.
3 To serve, thread the mango and cucumber onto 12 cocktail sticks, then the cherry tomato and a coriander leaf on the remaining sticks. Warm the fishcakes, if you like, at 180C/ 160C fan/gas 4 for 10 mins. Spear the mango version into the side of the fishcakes, then spear the cherry tomato version through the top of the remaining fishcakes.
