Steelhead Fish Cakes

A recipe for fish cakes made with steelhead, brown trout or salmon.

Originally  Posted: June 18, 2013.Every year, from April to August (except July!), my husband Mark goes on a four-day fishing trip to Lake Ontario. He and his buddies fish for brown trout, steelhead and salmon. Needless to say, I have a freezer full of fish and I’m always thinking of new ways to prepare it. This recipe for Steelhead Cakes is my take on a fish burger. It’s great with a side salad or on a bun.

The guys clean, and package up all the fish in just the right portion size for our family.

Back to Mark for a minute. He is an avid fisherman. That’s pretty obvious especially when you see what he named his boat.

This recipe is inspired by the salmon patties my mom used to make. Mom made them using canned salmon. This recipe is definitely an improvement.

That looks delicious! When we retire next year we will be buying a boat and lots of fishing is definitely on the agenda!

You’ll have to let me know what you name your boat!
