Thai Lotus

It’s party season and if you are having friends for drinks then Thai style fish cakes are an ideal bite sized appetiser for everyone to enjoy. They are very easy to make and can be prepared a day in advance if time allows. This recipe serves 8 people so if you are having a houseful then its easy to adapt the recipe and make batches. Thai style fish cakes are packed full of flavour and the spring onions and fine beans add that extra crunch. If you prefer your food extra spicy then simply leave the seeds in your chilli to pack an extra punch. I am serving the fish cakes with another Thai inspired salad made with cucumber.It’s light and refreshing and compliments the fish cakes brilliantly. You can also serve the fish cakes with a dipping sauce and our chilli jam is a perfect accompaniment.

Remove flowers from box by cutting any straps. Do not remove the rubber bands holding the flowers together in a bunch.
Fill containers with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water.
Cut bottom of stems diagonally approximately at least and inch from bottom under running water with sharp scissors or knife. This will create a fresh surface to absorb water.
Immediately after cutting, place the stems in the prepared water. Please note that your Tulips will continue to grow for about a day after they have been put in water.
Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate well. Your tulips will continue to grow once placed in water. It is best to wait at least 8 hours before arranging.
Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat.
Place Tulips in a place with even light, or rotate frequently as Tulips will turn to face the light.
Change water every 24 hours to keep flowers fresh. This will keep the water from becoming contaminated with bacteria that blocks the flower’s availability to absorb water. Assure that your flowers have sufficient water. The flowers will drink an exceptionally large amount of water upon arrival.
