  1. If using lemon grass, remove outer 2 layers. Quarter the pieces lengthwise. Cut across in very thin slices.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. With slightly moistened hands, form the mixture into 12 cakes, each about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Coat a large nonstick skillet lightly with oil. Heat over medium heat until hot. Add as many fish cakes as will fit comfortably in pan. Cook until nicely browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
