Chris Trout on Mochi Dashi Rice

Chris Trott, under the usernames Trottimus and Trott, is a member of the Yogscast and a third of Hat Films. Trott, Smith, and Ross are particularly well known for playing Minecraft, Trials Evolution, and a variety of other games. Having graduated in film production, Hat Films’ style of editing is often praised for being smooth and professional.

Trott is the most well-spoken of the Hat Films crew, his voice is deep and smooth, but he shows incredible range in their impromptu-songs. Trott, along with Smith, will often jump at the opportunity to make an obscene joke or pun. Trott is the member of Hat Films that is the most mocked. Although Trott takes these jokes well, he has shown great capability in retaliating, but he mostly takes them knowing that it is all in good fun.

Mochi is Chris Trott’s dog and the official mascot of Hat Films. She is a Japanese Spitz and is commonly brought on stream or in video.

Ingredients

2 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Mirin
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Rice Vinegar
1 tsp Instant Dashi
2 Carrots (diced)
1-2 Leeks (diced)
2 Trout fillets (bones removed)
2 portions Sushi Rice
1 Nori Sheet (crumbed)

Say what you see at its finest here. Often called a trout or a catfish, I decided fish was the better route to go for Chris Trott. And given he is now often found with his Japanese Spitz, Mochi, I had to sit the fish on some sticky rice, making this dish a wonderfully fitting Japanese-style dish!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 180°C. In a saucepan, bring the soy sauce, mirin, sugar and vinegar to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat for 10 minutes.
Step 2
Place the fish onto a baking tray and generously brush the sauce over the fish. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the fish is cooked.
Step 3
Meanwhile, in another saucepan, combine the dashi with 400ml of water and bring to a boil. Add the carrots, leeks and rice and simmer until the rice is cooked.
Step 4
Add the rice and veg to bowls and top with the fish. Use the crumbed Nori as a garnish with any leftover sauce.
