Looks great VB!

We had Thai fish cakes with steamed asparagus. I used basa in the cakes and it worked out quite nice. I have used cod and halibut but they were so expensive at the fish market and I am really starting to like basa.

I had a taste of Hake, yesterday. Very mild. I didn't notice the price because we were on a mission...

Never tried Hake. Price is not usually a factor, and really wasn't this time either as I wanted to try basa in my recipe. It gets mixed with red curry powder, cilantro, red pepper flakes and rice flour, so the fish has to be able to hold its own and this really did! It must have worked because DH had 8 and was considering going back for 3rds! I am having problems eating with my throat acting up again but dipped in Thai sweet chile sauce they went down nice!

The Hake was nice and firm, about a one inch cube. I think it would hold up nicely, not turning to mush. Does sound good!

Our dinner meetup group went very good tonight, but I'm completely bummed that I forgot to snap a photo of the meal. I did, however, get a good shot of the aftermath. Did I mention that this group likes wine? This was for 8 people.
