Just watched a video of a chef making this dish.
Diced trout fillets, tomatoes, parsley,chives,green onion,garlic,tobasco,worchester sauce,mayo.
Mix ingredients and put into a mould. He then emptied the mould onto a plate and served it with some type of crackers.
Has anyone tried a dish like this where raw trout is used?

You might consider this beforehand:

Is fresh water fish OK to use?
Another issue that comes up occasionally is the use of fresh-water fish for making sushi. I offer a resounding "NO." Fresh-water fish can contain bacteria and parasites that are more prolific or possibly dangerous than salt-water fish. Species such as salmon that spend a large portion of their lives in the ocean are generally considered safe, as well as its permanent denizens, but it is recommended that people not eat fresh-water fish raw due to the increased potential for health risks, some of which can be extremely dangerous.

Tapeworms are far nastier. They live in lots and lots of freshwater fish, to the point that only the foolish would even think about eating a wild trout or largemouth bass raw. Tapeworms can live inside people and can grow to 20 feet long inside you. Ick! Unless it is farmed, skip the walleye sashimi.

Maybe it's just paranoia but the feeling about eating raw fresh water fish seems to be pretty widespread.

I gotta second this post...... freshwater fish are not great to eat raw, can cause too many complications can arise! Unless you are absoluty confident that the fish came from cold waters....its not worth the risk

If you like fish and it's fresh, why adulterate it with other manmade stuff? Most folks wouldn't think of doing that with a fine cut of beef. Why do it with fish. My 2 cents---to each, his own I guess.

Well, Aught 6, It's about time you showed up. This place has gotten pretty dull lately. If it wasn't for those yanks yakking about some sort of slow version of football we'd have fallen asleep. 'Sides that, you services may be needed as a bear deterrent.
