Packed with lime, coriander, ginger and a kick of chilli, Jo Pratt's crab cakes are perfect for a midweek treat
Method1. In a food processor, lightly mix together spring onions, chilli, ginger, curry paste, coconut, rice, crab, lime zest, and coriander. Add one beaten egg to bind. If you find the mixture too wet, add a handful of the breadcrumbs until the mixture binds.
2. Shape the mixture into small balls with your hands. Chill for 20 minutes then coat in the breadcrumbs.
3. Fry in a little oil for 3-4 minutes until crisp, golden brown and piping hot all the way through.
4. Serve with sweet chilli dipping sauce and lime wedges.
