Step 2:

Separate egg yolks and whites into two bowls. Flake the smoked trout into the mash, season with salt and pepper. Add the egg yolks and chives, mix well and form into croquettes.

How to smoke trout:

Give your fresh trout a quick wash and then put them into the brine for 24 hours in the fridge. Then, take them out of the brine and give them a good wash. Dry them off. Place fresh rosemary inside them. Lay them on the racks and place them into the smoker. It should take about an hour to smoke them.
