Tod Mun Goong (Thai shrimp cakes)


Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of making these today or tomorrow. Looks simple. Puree raw shrimp to a paste and add in seasonings like fish sauce, chili and onion then shallow fry. I'm seeing lots of recipes around the web.

Have you made this before? or had it at a restaurant?

Thanks!

Thanks Chris!

Bahh! Just opened the package and Fresh Direct screwed up my order. They sent me salmon instead of shrimp, but what the heck I'll make it anyway.

As a binder I think I'll just use an egg yolk.

Other ingredients:

  • cilantro
  • Fish Sauce
  • sugar
  • green curry paste
  • minced serrano
  • vidalia onion
  • maybe ginger, I'm on the fence about that one.

It was fantastic!!!!! I worked off of maybe 4 recipes I found on Thai websites and came up with the following. I think the Panko coating really elevated the dish. Very crunchy outside with soft salmon and crunchy cilantro stems and vidalia onion. I'm definitely making this for the next party I have and making them appetizer size.

I tossed 1lb of salmon in the blender along with:

  • 2 Tbsp Fish sauce
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Sugar
  • lots of ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 - 2 Tbsp Green Thai curry paste

Chopped it to a puree, then realized I had to fish the skins out. :hmmm: What's lovely is the skin stayed in whole pieces and the meat had been removed. Kind of amazing.

I added the fish mixture to a bowl and folded in:

  • a good handful of cilantro, with stems because we like them
  • about 1/4 cup of minced vidalia onion

I chilled it for an hour and dredged 1/4-1/2 inch patties in Panko crumbs.

Shallow fried in shallow peanut oil for no more than 3 minutes per side.

We had it with my roast asparagus wrapped in bacon, pea puree, homemade mango ketchup, yogurt and Matouk's hotsauce. Epic.

I can't wait to make it with shrimp.

      I posted this on YouTube the other day and thought I'd post it here. Personally, when I make them for me I only use Erythritol (a sugar substitute) but depending on the friend sugar or a blend of the two. Unlike other zucchini brownies, these don't use egg white, so they're not cake-y, but dense and fudgy. 
       
      Oh, and because I use whey protein, they're higher in protein and good for post-workout bite. 
       
       
      Ingredients
      300 -400 grams zucchini 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar or sugar substitute 1/2 cup cocoa 1-2 tablespoons flavoring (brandy, rum, vanilla, etc) 2 shots of espresso (or instant, 60ml/2oz) 2 egg yolks 1/2 cup flour 1/2 cup oatmeal 1 cup whey protein (or milk powder) 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional, but adds nice flavor)   1. Mince the zucchini in the food processor with the salt.
      2. Add the sugar or sugar substitute and process until the sugar is dissolved.
      3. Bloom your cocoa: In a separate bowl, combine the cocoa with HOT espresso and your flavorings (including cinnamon). Stir until mostly dissolved.
      4. To the food processor add the cocoa mixture and two egg yolks and blend together.
      5. Add the whey protein or milk powder to the mixture and blend together.
      6. Add the oatmeal and blend.
      7. Add the flour and pulse to incorporate (in other words, try not to over mix).
      8. Pour into a brownie pan and bake for 20-30 minutes at 180C/350F

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      In hopes of sleeping better, etc, etc, I have currently given up gluten, dairy and now sugar.  The gluten and dairy pose no problems...the sugar does.  I am not happy using mannitol or erythritol or any of those artificial sweeteners...they give me severe digestive problems.   But I can tolerate stevia very nicely.  The only problem is that there doesn't seem to be much sweetened with this ingredient.
       
      I do have a carob/coconut oil/peanut butter/stevia candy of sorts.  I don't really like it all that much, but it does work.  That's about it.
       
      Has anyone any recipes for desserts using stevia?  Thanks.

      Ever since Todd talked making cupcakes I have been cupcake crazy. Although, I am not a cake maker but more of a pie person.
      My first dessert that I love that I make is my Coconut Cream Pie w/heavy whipped cream. I don't use low fat anything and probably angioplasties is necessary after this baby.
      My second is Peach Cobbler w/rich vanilla ice cream. I never met a cobbler that I didn't like, but peach is my favorite.
      I don't make these often because I wouldn't be able to get through the front door if I did.
      How about yours?
      .....Janet
