Smoked Trout Croquettes

Makes 12

  • 2 smoked trout (about 330g each)
  • 60g butter
  • 1 small brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • ⅓ cup fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 orange, juiced, rind finely grated
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1½ cups dried breadcrumbs
  • 1¼ cups whole egg mayonnaise
  • white pepper
  • oil for shallow frying
  • steamed baby carrots, to serve


How to make these Smoked Trout Croquettes:

1 Remove skin from trout and discard. Remove meat from carcass, discarding bones. Chop meat. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook for 3 minutes or until tender. Add ½ cup flour; stir until combined and mixture begins to bubble. Remove from heat; slowly add milk. Return to heat. Stir until mixture comes to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 minute or until thickened. Set aside to cool. Stir in trout, ¼ cup dill, orange rind and 2 tbsp orange juice. Transfer to 
a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 
4 hours, preferably overnight.

2 Place remaining flour, egg and breadcrumbs in separate bowls. Form ⅓-cup quantities of trout mixture into 12 sausages. Coat with flour, egg, then breadcrumbs. Place on tray. Freeze for 10 minutes.

3 Combine mayonnaise, 1 tbsp orange juice and remaining dill in a bowl. Season with salt and white pepper.

4 Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add 3-4 croquettes and cook for 4 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat with remaining croquettes. Serve with carrots and dressing.
