Add the remaining shrimp and the fish sauce and pulse again, this time keeping the mixture chunky. Season well with black pepper, then form into 18 flat cakes.

Heat the grill to high. Brush both sides of the cakes with a tiny bit of vegetable oil and place on a baking sheet.

Cook for 2 mins on one side, turn over and brush with the sugar water. Cook for another 2-3 mins or until opaque and slightly browned at the edges. Serve the cakes with the lettuce leaves, herbs and the cucumber relish.
