This is a wonderful and easy recipe. I made some small changes to it. I started with 1.5 pounds of FRESH FRESH FRESH white fish, nothing canned and no dark oily fish like Salmon. Use Haddok or Sole maybe Halibut if price permits. Double the oyster sauce content, double the cilantro content to half cup. Use a tablespoon of molasses instead of Brown Sugar, it will help in the end. ANd lastly, if you can get your hands on a product called NAMPRIK PAO (Thai spelling) this will make the flavors explode. It is a paste found in a jar at many import Thai or oriental stores. A common brand name is MAERSI. Put in about 3 tablespoons of this and a little less of the sweet chile sauce and you will love this. Seems like a lot of changes but when I served this a close chef friend of mine from a noteworthy kitchen claimed these to be among the top 3 he had ever had.

This recipe was very bland. It tasted like nothing. We had to add sauces and other spices to make it taste like something! Flip side, if you dont mind experimenting with sauces and spices, it is very easy and quick to make. I do rec. lowering the heat though while frying or even.. bake it! (less oil and fat that way!)

Great recipe. I love spicy food so I added 1 red chillie to the ingredient. It gave it a little kick and still tasted fantastic.

These were good. I made no changes except I dipped the patties in Panko instead of dusting with flour before frying. I loved the addition of cilantro and sweet chili sauce.

Absolutely fantastic when made with dughr's suggestions!! In addition, I add a couple cloves of garlic and coat the cakes with italian bread crumbs, rather than flour. I make a dipping sauce with mayonnaise, red pepper and a touch of lime juice.

This recipe was very tasty, even without the cilantro. I also added some sweet corn to the second half of the mix which added a nice dimension, though not very thai.

Great recipe. You can also use any kind of canned fish for this recipe such as salmon (my favorite) or tuna, and it's just a excellent, plus a little quicker and easier.
