I was planning to make savoury pancakes for tea, a good dish for lots of people and popular with the wwoofers. We got home to discover that wwoofer Pat had caught a 4.5kg golden perch in our big dam. He only had a light kid’s fishing rod from Aldi, so the beast took a while to land.
Pat baked the fish, with Nicky’s vegetable stuffing, and between four of us we managed to eat less than half in a sitting. The next night, I cooked up the remainder in thai fishcakes. There were some left over for lunch the next day, so pretty good utilisation of the resource.
Addition: We came up with a heraldic banner for Pat, showing his golden perch and two smaller redfin he also caught.
