Ingredients for Salad
• 2 Oranges (segmented)

  • Place the smoking mixture on a sheet of foil and scrunch the edges to stop it falling out. Place the foil parcel in a wok and position a small rack over it. Place wok over high heat. When mixture starts to smoke, put trout fillet on the rack and cover wok with a lid or more foil. Allow the fish to smoke for 10 minutes, then remove fish and refrigerate. To make the salad, flake the cooled trout into a medium-sized bowl and add all the salad ingredients. To make the dressing, mix the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl then toss gently through the salad. Serve on a platter or divide.
