Saigon Style Wild Rice and Salmon Fritters
Combine the garlic, shallots, jalapeno, cilantro, fish sauce, egg and half of the cooked wild rice blend in the bowl of a food processor and process to form a coarse puree.
Combine the remaining rice blend and the flaked salmon, then scrape in the flavor puree. Mix well, until mixture comes together into a cohesive batter. Roll into walnut-sized balls, then roll in panko crumbs to coat.
Heat oil in a deep skillet to 350 degrees. Working in batches, fry the fritters until golden brown, turning frequently for even browning. Use a slotted spoon to remove them to a paper towel-lined plate.
Prepare the Red Curry Mayonnaise by whisking the mayonnaise, red curry paste, lime juice, fish sauce and brown sugar until smooth. Serve fritters topped with a dollop of red curry mayonnaise. Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
