Ingredients

Rice

1 packet basmati rice

1 cups water C

Pinch of salt C

Fish Cakes

600g blue eye trevalla, roughly chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tbsp grated ginger

Chilli, finely chopped (optional)

1 carrot, grated

1 cup grated sweet potato

1/2 cup roughly chopped coriander leaves and stalks

3 tbsp soy sauce

1/4 cup plain flour

Asian Vegetables

1 tsp oil (e.g. peanut, canola, sunflower)

1 clove garlic, minced

1 packet baby corn, halved

1 bunch bok choy, end removed, halved lengthways

200g button mushrooms, finely sliced

2 tbsp kecap manis

Dipping Sauce

3-4 tbsp kecap manis

2 tbsp finely chopped coriander

1/2 chilli, finely chopped (optional)

Method

  1. Combine all rice ingredients in a medium pot and bring to the boil.
  2. As soon as it boils, cover with a tight-fitting lid and reduce to the lowest heat to cook for 12 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave to steam, still covered, for a further 8 minutes. Do not lift the lid while cooking.
  3. While the rice cooks, prepare the fishcakes. Place the fish in a food processor or blender and process until finely chopped. Add the garlic, ginger, chilli, carrot, sweet potato, coriander and soy sauce and process until well combined.
  4. Divide the fish mixture into 8-10 equal portions, roll into patties and flatten slightly. Coat in flour (shaking off excess). Heat a drizzle of oil in a large fry-pan (preferably non-stick) on medium heat. Cook fish cakes in batches, for 2-3 minutes each side, until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and cover with tinfoil to keep warm.
  5. While the fish cakes are cooking, heat oil in a large fry-pan or wok on high heat. Add garlic, baby corn, bok choy and mushrooms and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, until tender. Stir through kecap manis.
  6. Combine dipping sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  7. Divide rice, fish cakes and Asian vegetables between plates and serve with dipping sauce on the side.
