Trout and truffle croquettes

Ingredients

1 fresh rainbow trout, cleaned
50g truffle, finely grated
1 tablespoon of butter
½ leek, finely sliced
2 tablespoons thyme, chopped
handful of chopped parsley
5 large royal blue potatoes
sea salt flakes
freshly ground pink pepper

To crumb

1 cup plain flour
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups panko bread crumbs
rice bran oil for deep frying

Preheat oven to 170c. Brush the trout with olive oil and salt flakes, and bake until just cooked through. Chill, and carefully remove the flesh from the trout- discarding the bones and skin. Peel the potatoes and place into cold salted water. Bring to the boil and simmer until cooked through. Steam dry, and mash while still hot. Sautee the leeks in the butter and a little oil until soft, add the thyme and cook for another few minutes. Mix the trout flesh, onion mix and truffle into the mash. Season with salt flakes, pink pepper corns and cool. When cool roll into little sausage shapes coat in flour, then dip into egg then coat in panko crumbs. Deep fry at 180 degrees until golden brown. Finish with a little more pink pepper and shaved truffle, serve immediately with baby leaves and/or a light mayonnaise.

SUPERFOOD SERIES: Pumpkin

We’re in the middle of a full-on pumpkin flavour takeover. There’s pumpkin in your bagels, beer and coffee. Apparently Starbucks has sold more than 200 million Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the past 10 years. Even the makers of Pringles are getting in on the action. While most pumpkin-flavoured treats should be added to the once-in-a-while list, pumpkin itself (not to be confused with artificial pumpkin spice flavouring) is actually one of the healthier foods of the season. #FromPaddocktoPlate #feedyourmind
