30g coriander
2T sesame oil
1 green chilli
500g salmon

1 cup desiccated coconut
4 limes

Add the lemongrass, ginger, spring onion and garlic along with the coriander, sesame oil, and green chilli to a blender then blend to form a paste.

Add the garlic, ginger and chilli and cook for another minute before adding the coconut and toasting. Add the brown sugar, fish sauce and water. Simmer down until almost jammy then take off the heat set aside.
Place into a blender and blend until smooth. Serve with the fish cakes and a few wedges of lime on the side.
