Finding meals that are healthy, delicious and good for you can sometimes be a challenge; especially during the week when life seems so busy with work, family and other commitments.

Our Sweet Chilli Thai Fish Cakes is a simple healthy recipe that can be eaten for lunch, dinner and well as making a great snack.

They are very versatile being eaten on their own or teamed with a healthy side salad for fasting days or you could add the cakes to a bun or wrap and have a fish burger.

Everyone loves fish cakes; they are an old family favorite and for good reason… it’s a meal that can be eaten for one or many and the kids love them too.

Why not make a double batch of these simple Fish Cakes this weekend and that way you have a few meals ready to go.
