Trout Cakes

Here is a recipe for Trout cakes from Fish and Game kids New Zealand issue thirteen.

  • 1 Trout cleaned1/2 onion diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tblspn mayonnaise
  • 2 tblspn mustard
  • 1 handful fresh parsley, chopped
  • breadcrumbs
  • lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • butter
  • toasted sesame seeds to taste

Brush trout with olive oil, place on foil in a roasting pan, and broil until barely cooked through. The meat should separate easily from the backbone and skin yet still be tender and moist. Pick out all the bones. Set meat aside.

Saute diced onion and red pepper in butter. Remove to large bowl. Mix together with the trout meat, mayonnaise, mustard, egg, breadcrumbs, parsley and a squeeze of lemon. Add toasted sesame.

Form into patties and fry in butter until cakes are lightly browned on the outside.


Rotoiti night trip May 2013

Eleven members of the Rotorua  Anglers Association took part in this trip which is designed to introduce members to winter shoreline night fishing.

The evening started at 4.00 pm with a BBQ at the pipe and then anglers spread themselves along the Hinehopu shoreline. The weather was fine with a light SE wind – perfect.

Some anglers fished through the change of light while other hardy souls (read this as mad) fished  till nearly midnight. The fishing was hard which may be due to the continued warm weather which has probably  delayed the winter spawning.

In spite if this four fish were landed and 3-4 lost.

Hopefully there will be more fish to catch next year.

Thanks Neil for a great night out.

Below are some of the images captured on this night.
