Cilantro-lime Fish Cakes with Sauce


2 cups cooked Senegalese broken rice, cooled
1 1/2 cups sardines or leftover fish
1/2 cup diced onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbsps mayonnaise
1 egg
2 Tbsps lime juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
Sriracha dipping sauce (recipe below)


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the rice, fish, onions and cilantro. In a separate bowl, whisk mayo, egg, lime juice and garlic together until smooth. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the rice and fish. Stir to combine.
  2. Tip: Use a stick blender to purée 1/4 to 1/2 of the mixture, then mix it with the rest. This helps it stick together better.
  3. Drop the mixture in a greased, hot skillet by spoonfuls about 1/4 cup each. Pat them out with a spatula to 1/2 inch thick. Add the fish cakes to fill the pan. Cook for 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove from the pan and set aside.
