Trout Cakes

By Taylor Ferguson

As we wrap up prime fishing season and head into hunting season, it's time to think about eating all the trout caught while staying active outdoors all summer! I don’t know about you, but by this time of year, I have had plenty of smoked, baked, and grilled trout. This recipe is an easy way to use up a lot ofc fresh or frozen catch.

Trout

4 whole trout (cleaned/gutted)
Bake 400 10-15 min until flaky
Peel skin, flake meat off & transfer to bowl
Remove all bones
Shred/chop meat


Seasonings

1tsp old bay
1/2tsp garlic powder
1/4tsp cayenne pepper
1/2tsp lemon peel
Salt & pepper to taste

Cake Ingredients

1/2 onion (red or yellow), finely chopped
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (fresh or bought)
1 large egg, beaten

Combine seasonings, onion, breadcrumbs, and beaten egg with shredded/chopped meat into a bowl. Form into 1/4 cup patties/cakes. Roll into remaining breadcrumbs. Heat 2 tbs oil in large skillet and cook the cakes until they're golden brown. Serve with tartar or horseradish sauce.
