Yield: 4 servings

  • 1.25 lbs (550 grams) of cooked trout, or any other tinned fish if you can’t get trout
  • 3.5 oz (100 grams) sundried tomatoes, finely diced
  • 2.5 oz (80 grams) finely chopped spring onion
  • 1.75 lbs (700 grams) cooked pumpkin, mashed (you want it previously roasted or steamed; not boiled, as it will be too wet)
  • 1 egg
  • 0.9 oz (25 g) finely grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Optional: Serve with fresh coriander and bell peppers


  1. Combine ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Shape the mixture into patties.
  3. In a non-stick frying pan, dry fry the patties until golden brown.  Although I have not tried it, you may attempt frying them in an air fryer.
  4. Serve with your fresh coriander and bell peppers if desired, and enjoy!
