Lempiang Ikan/Fried Fish Cake

Starting of the December school holidays and been in lazy mode for the past few days as no need to rush here and there :D Cooking also becoming lazy, fish porridge, minced pork porridge, fried rice, fried meehoon hehehe...Back to this dish :D Oh it is so delicious! It is quite similar the Thai Fish Cake, though I've yet to attempt to cook this, but I think this Kedah style fried fish cake is not much difference  from the Thai style :D

  • 300gm fish paste
  • 30gm long beans, diced
  • 3 pieces kaffir lime leave, finely chopped
  • 1 spring onion, diced
  • 1 small egg
  • 1 red chilli, diced
  • 1 tbsp chilli boh
Seasoning :
  • 1 tbsp osyter sauce
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
For coating : 3 tbsp cornflour

Dipping sauce : Combine all sauce ingredients and bring to boil till reduce slightly and thickens.
  • 2 fresh red chilli, ground into paste
  • 4 tbsp white vinegar
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground peanuts
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 1 cup water
  • salt to taste

  1. Combine fish paste, chilli paste, kaffier lime leaves, egg and all seasonings. Mix well and stir in long beans. Set aside for 15mins.
  2. Wet your hand, take about 1 heap tbsp of the mixture and form into flat round shape.
  3. Heat some oil in a frying pan. Coat the fish cake with some cornflour and pan fry on both sides until golden brown. Remove and drain well on kitchen paper.
  4. Serve with dipping sauce.
