    I most often use Salmon trimmings for this recipe

    800 g chicken mince [1.7 lb]
    2 eggs
    1 long red chilli, finely diced
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    2 TBSP fresh coriander, chopped
    1 TBSP chopped thai basil
    3 TBSP chopped green onion
    thumb sized piece of grated fresh ginger

    2 TBSP fish sauce
    1tsp sesame oil
    Zest of 1 lime
    2 TBSP fresh lime juice

    2 TBSP coconut oil for frying

    mix all together and make flat cakes and fry

    we serve it on fresh baby greens and more herbs and cucumbers ...and dressing of choice. They keep and reheat really well. Also really good cold as part of a nosh plate.

    We also serve them on sauteed kale [in lots of butter] with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce

    my pleasure! Just use a mild Chilli Dawn - that is what I do. Tony doesn't like very spicy things either - except for me - that is!
    I am really loving the sauteed Kale lately ...it really does suck up the butter tho ...and bacon fat would be great.

    OMG! This was good.

    I picked up a couple locally raised chicken breasts at the Farmer's market this weekend. Coarsley chopped the meat and combined it with other ingredients. I had forgotten to pick up ginger root, so this mixture sat in the fridge all day absorbing flavors. I added ginger root when I got home and them pan fried them in ghee.

    Heaven. Mixed some homemade mayo with a few drops of siracha sauce and served it on the side.

    Can't wait to try this with salmon...

    P.s. didn't have a chili pepper, so I substituted a good sized teaspoon of chili pepper paste.

    I tried this tonight with canned salmon. Really good, though mine didn't hold together very well and then stuck to my pan :rofl:. I think my fish sauce must be too salty, so I'll try less next time, but will definitely make these again. So good :)

    Hi Caroline,

    It came out no to bad, l didn't have some of the ingredient, well I did have ginger but couldn't find it until after the fact. Lol I need to add more favor. I put in raw salmon, raw sprimp, canned osters and just mixed it in the other ingredients. I am trying to find a way to eat osters in hinden way, yuko they taste to me. Like liver I grate it from frozen into my ground beef.

    sounds good Billy. Do whatever you need to do. I think I did mention that we use salmon bits from our seafood guy. They are generally a lot cheaper. I am going to try them with canned alaskan wild caught salmon. Goodness knows where our fresh salmon is coming from these days!

    my God Caroline what are you doing to me; i'm on a week long green juice cleanse after New Mexico - wow amazing - i'm going to make this

    okay then! ..... A stick blender usually has a tall beaker

    put two eggs in bottom of beaker
    add 2 TBSP of lemon juice
    and 2 TBSP apple cider vinegar ..... let come to room temperature - don't beat!

    now I add all kinds if things that we love ..... garlic cloves, bit of good mustard, lots of fresh basil, fresh parsley, chopped green onions.
    good salt
    a little bit of raw honey
    2 cups of EVOO

    put stick blender right at the bottom of beaker and start blitzing - after awhile slowly bring stick up to the top and I pulse up and down until I am happy with it.

    you can use just 1 egg and half everything and forget a lot of the other stuff for just plain and boring mayo!
    you can use MCT oil for some of the oil.

    let me know how it goes!

    No stick blender here so it looks like to have enough volume for my blendtec to effectively blend it I'm going to have to triple the recipe and try it. Wish me luck.

    Ahh worked out great! Thanks. I did double the egg volume for a single batch and a blendtec did a great job on it.

    Dan - I will have to google a blendtec .....but I have assumed the reason the stick blender works is because of the very narrow space at the bottom of the beaker - so you start whipping the eggs and lemon juice first ....just like a conventional recipe.

    Anyway - so glad it worked .... we eat so much of this stuff.

    One of our favourite ways is to chop up some rocket and celery and cucumbers and red onions and avocado and salmon and shrimp pieces and mix this herb mayo thru ....and top with poached eggs. very yummy!

    Also - I think I have added black pepper and fresh tumeric to the stick blender as well...
