Fish cakes are very similar to croquettes, they are mainly made of fish paste with variations of other ingredients added to form a patty. The adaptation of different ingredients depends largely on types of cuisines cooked with different types of fish used (normally white fish like cod, snapper, blue eye, bream or ling or oily fish like salmon and mackerel), mashed potato or flour, eggs or no eggs, bacon or ham, prawns, crab meats, herbs or spices and different types of vegetables used. Different culinary approaches, whether its steamed, boiled, stir-fried, pan fried, or deep fried, all produce distinct variations of fish cakes.

In Southeast Asia, fish cakes are commonly included as an ingredient in hotpots, soups, stir-fried with vegetables, noodles or rice, dim sum, or pan fried and even deep fried. Fish cakes are commonly served as appetizers, included as an ingredient in main meals and can even be eaten as a snack. For my gluten free spicy salmon cakes recipe, I am using salmon fish, combined with frozen peas, carrots and corns mix and seasoned with gluten free curry powder, ground paprika and served with a cucumber dipping sauce. This recipe is also dairy free, nut free, soy free and egg free. This spicy salmon cakes gives a nice tweak to the more traditional Thai fish cakes recipe.
