Just five ingredients (not counting salt, pepper, and olive oil) pack maximal flavor in these simple fishcakes. The secret weapon is chili jam, a sweet and spicy condiment; Trader Joe’s and Stonewall Kitchens are two widely available brands. This recipe is excerpted from 5 Ingredients: Quick & Easy Food.

Easy and excellent results. Like all fish cakes, I always refrigerate them for an hour before cooking - they stick together much better that way. Chopping the fish on top of the ginger/lemongrass mixture is an excellent idea - mixed it all in really well. Instead of salt, I used a little soy sauce to add flavor.
Where does one find chili jam? Commercial product or is there a recipe which is not included?
Excellent! Easy recipe with outstanding results. The first time I did it exactly as directed but elected to use a food processor for a double batch on the second try. Chopping by hand resulted in fish cakes that were more moist and juicy while the food processor version was very dry. Back to hand processing next time around.
