Well , fresh Kowhai, I would do a beer batter, then put them into hot oil, let them come up to surface, take out, let them cool a bit, then place them back into the hot oil, again let them cook till they come to surface then eat.
They taste so great nice and fresh .
Fish cakes are better with cooked fish, so please don't waste it on them.

Have loads of fish (was a good morning for it) will be using them fresh fillets tonight (I prefer mine baked, hubby likes egg and breadcrumbed) but sons hanging out for cakes. I can't seem to get the fish/ spud ratio correct - they seem to fall apart even with egg. Just wondering if anyone had a never fail recipe

Kahawai

Meaning strong (Kaha) in the water (wai).

Great for Thai style fish cakes and raw fish too.

Blue Cod Fishcakes with lemon mayonnaise
2 cups milk
1 kg blue cod (you could get away with less - it’s very expensive)
1 cup Japanese Panko crumbs (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1/4 cup chopped chives
2 tablespoons grated onion
2 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 1/2 tsp salt
pepper
3 eggs lightly beaten
2 cloves garlic minced
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup oil
Poach the fish in the milk until it flakes. Drain well. Heat the oil. Mix all the ingredients together. I used a lot more crumbs as the mixture was just too wet. Form into patties and coat in extra Panko crumbs and fry in the oil until brown on both sides - about 3-4 minutes per side.
Lemon Mayonnaise
Combine
1/2 cup good mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 teaspoons grainy mustard
2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon pepper
