Trout Cakes

“The Grey Plume’s menu is seasonal and driven by local farmer supply. We get our groceries from growers in Nebraska and Iowa, and we make everything from scratch—from pickling veggies to churning our own butter. This is Nebraska’s version of a crab cake. The trout comes from a sustainable aquaculture farm in the Ogallala Aquifer, two hours west of Omaha. The recipe is simple and easy to replicate using other ingredients, so you can try it with seafood that’s specific to your region. Pair it with spinach salad and bacon vinaigrette or put it atop a simple Caesar salad. It normally pops up on our bar menu, so it would be a fun snack for a cocktail party.”

Who Clayton Chapman, chef/owner
