Thai Fish Kebabs

I love this recipe, its really simple and no guilty pleasures, it’s all good.  It’s a great way of eating simple fish made tasty.  It also looks like fine dining food so it’s a fabulous dish if you’re entertaining and of course for BBQ’s.


3 cups raw cod fillets cut into chunks (or any white fish or prawns)

3 lime leaves finely chopped

1 tbsp Green curry paste

½ egg

1 tbsp fish sauce

½ tsp sugar

1 tbsp plain flour (or corn flour)

1 large handful coriander leaves

1/2 cup French beans or sugar snap peas cut into

thin slices (julienne)

8 skewers

Cooking Instructions

Place the fish, egg, sugar, fish sauce and red Thai curry paste into the processor and blitz for 10-15 seconds, and turn out into a bowl.

Now add the lime leaves, coriander and flour and mix together.

Finally add the French beans or sugar snaps and mix well and divide into 10 balls.

Now roll into a sausage shape about 3.5 inches long, dab your finger in a little water to be able to work with the mixture and then push onto a sturdy skewer leaving at least 2/3 inches at the end to be able to pick up and handle.

Place on a foiled baking tray and cook at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes.

When cooked and ready to serve, garnish with fresh limes cut into quarters and a little chopped coriander.
