I’ve got the perfect yummy, light dish for the hot days of summer we’ve been experiencing lately … Smoked Trout Fritters. In fact, here in Charlotte, I think yesterday was the first day that temps didn’t hit the 90s in over 3 weeks! Phew.
So, I thought a big salad for dinner would do us some good, and this was a salad with plenty of flavor thanks to the yummy Smoked Trout and Buttermilk Fritters I put on top. And let’s not forget the Buttermilk Dill dressing as a final touch … it was so good that my 15-year-old quickly went back for seconds!
What’ve you been enjoying for dinner lately in this heat?
What are Fritters?
A fritter is typically defined as any variety of fried food, generally consisting of small pieces of meat, veggies, fruit, or dough.
Substitution Options for Smoked Trout Fritters
If you can’t find a pack of smoked trout at your store you could always substitute smoked salmon (either hot smoked or cold smoked). I always feel like those two are pretty interchangeable when it comes to dips, cracker (or even deviled egg) toppings, and the like.
Do You Eat the Skin of Smoked Trout?
When making these smoked trout fritters, be sure to remove the skin before cooking.
These are AMAZING. SO good. I also put fresh dill in the fritters.
