Total Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 12 trout cakes

Ingredients

  1. 8 oz (250 g) smoked trout fillets, skin removed and flaked
  2. 1/2 cup (125 mL) Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  3. 2 eggs, beaten
  4. 2 green onions, finely chopped

  7. 2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh parsley
  8. 2 tbsp (30 mL) lime juice
  9. 1 tbsp (15 mL) honey

Method

  1. Mix smoked trout with breadcrumbs, eggs and green onions until combined. Divide mixture into 12 portions (approx. 2 tbsp/30 mL each) and form into patties.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp (30 mL) oil in large, nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Cook patties 2 to 3 min. per side or until golden brown.

Tip:
To make ahead, cook trout cakes 1 day in advance, cool, cover and refrigerate. Reheat on parchment-lined baking sheet in 350° F (180°C) oven approx. 10 min., or until warmed through. The relish can be made up to 1 day in advance and stored in airtight container in fridge.
