Trout Cakes

For a unique way to use trout, cook it and flake it, then mix in potato flakes and a few additional ingredients for delicious trout cakes.


  • 1/2 cup House-Autry Seafood Seasoned Breading Mix
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 medium onion - finely chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper - seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp instant chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper sauce
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 lb stream trout or substitute - fillets
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) condensed cream of celery soup - divided
  • 2 cups instant potato buds or flakes
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 12 slices American cheese
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk


If cooking over an open fire, build campfire allow to burn down to glowing coals. Otherwise, place cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Melt butter in skillet. Add onion and red bell pepper. Cook 1-2 minutes.

Add water, bouillon, Worcestershire sauce, red pepper sauce and pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add trout fillets. Cook 3-5 minutes or until trout is firm and completely flaked.

Remove skillet from the heat. Add lemon juice and 1/3 cup cream of celery soup. Gradually stir in potato flakes until mixture is stiff. Let cool 5 minutes.

Place House-Autry Seafood Seasoned Breading Mix on a paper plate. Divide fish mixture into 12 equal portions. Shape each into 3.5 inch rounds. Dredge both sides of each patty in seafood breading mix. Wipe out skillet. Place back on heat. Heat 2 tablespoons oil.

Add 4 patties. Cook for 4-6 minutes, or until golden brown, turning once and topping with cheese during final minutes of cooking time. Place on plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining patties.

Wipe out skillet. Add remaining soup and the evaporated milk. Cook mixture for 5-6 minutes or until hot, stirring constantly. Spoon about 1 tbsp sauce over each cake.
