The Fish Patty with Lime and Shallot Dressing offers a delightful and simple culinary experience. The recipe, designed to be quick and easy, is especially appealing for children. The dish’s versatility allows for personal flavor combinations, making it adaptable to individual preferences.

The main ingredient is a pound of freshly prepared salmon paste, which can also be made from any fresh white fish. This is combined with a blend of lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, garlic, and galangal known as kroeung, providing a distinct and aromatic flavor profile. Additional elements like Knorr chicken bouillon, cornstarch, baking powder, water, sugar, fish sauce, and seasoning soy sauce contribute to the overall taste and texture of the fish patty.

To accompany the fish patty, a zesty Lime Dipping Sauce is prepared. It incorporates the juice and pulp of two limes, minced or ground garlic, thinly sliced shallots, fish sauce, sugar, minced Thai chilies, and roasted crushed peanuts. These ingredients are combined to create a tangy and flavorful dressing that perfectly complements the fish patty. The addition of a garnish with green onions adds a fresh and visually appealing touch.

The preparation of the fish patty is straightforward. The fish paste and lemongrass mixture, along with the other seasonings, are combined and left to firm up in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Once ready, the mixture is formed into patties and fried in a nonstick pan with vegetable or olive oil until golden brown on each side. After frying, the patties are allowed to cool on paper towels.

For those looking to add extra texture, the option to include long beans and onions in the patty wrap is provided. This enhances the overall eating experience, providing a slightly chunkier texture. In conclusion, the Fish Patty with Lime and Shallot Dressing is a simple yet flavorful dish that is sure to please both kids and adults alike.
