Smoked Trout & Potato Salad

Living in Belgium where smoked salmon is not as abundant as in Ireland, I’ve been getting creative with alternatives. This week, I tried smoked trout, which is significantly cheaper than either salmon or mackerel. Seemingly it’s more sustainable than salmon. It’s also delicious!

Serves: 2 Cooking Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 smoked trout fillets
  • 3 medium potatoes
  • 1 small red onion, finely sliced

Peel and cube the potatoes. Place in a pot of cold water, bring to the boil and then simmer until cooked.


Place onion, parsley, capers, lemon and mayonnaise in a bowl and mix. Taste and add a little agave if it’s too bitter.


Cool potatoes once cooked and mix with mayonnaise.


To serve, place potato in bowl, top with cucumber and sprouts and flake trout. Pour any leftover sauce over the top and enjoy!
