From the creek to the beak

Ok, so poor play on words but i am trying to be creative....

Yesterday i got a text message from berry saying that he got me dinner.....the text was this....


The rest of the conversation went like this:
Me: "what IS that?"
B: "Fish."
Me: "Duhh but what type?"
B: "Spotted sea trout."

Which then led me to Google "sea trout recipes," which led me to a recipe i thought i would try.

Charleston Sea Trout Cakes
1 lb sea trout fillets, cooked and diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
½ red pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 small red potatoes, cooked and diced
1 egg, beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
½ teaspoon seafood seasoning
dash Worcestershire sauce
dash hot sauce
Mix all ingredients and blend well.
Form into cakes.
Heat olive oil on the stove and sauté cakes lightly on both sides.
Don't overcook, serve as soon as cakes are golden brown.

The result:

Now, my pictures don't really do our dinner justice. My friend Diana inspired me to take a picture...she and her fiance cook and post pictures of the food on facebook- amazing stuff people...i would want her to be my personal chef if i had the money! Anyway, i digress. If i cook more, i will get better with my photography skills.
For dinner tonight, I made 8 Charleston Sea Trout Cakes and served them with broccoli and cheese grits. A VERY southern dinner.
And it was delicious! Taylor even had a second helping! I say that is success!


  1. yummy!! Stephen's been trying to catch one of those since he moved here! Maybe Berry can take him out and show him the ropes sometime!
