Smoked trout, asparagus and radish salad


You'll need

1 Desiree potato (about 140gm), cut into julienne 4 asparagus spears, thinly sliced lengthways on a mandolin 8 small French breakfast radishes, halved (see note) 1 golden shallot, thinly sliced on a mandolin Juice of 1 lemon 2 tbsp grapeseed oil 200 gm thinly sliced smoked trout (see note) 2 cups (loosely packed) watercress sprigs ¼ cup (loosely packed) dill sprigs 5 gm finely grated fresh horseradish (optional; see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Blanch potato in boiling salted water until just tender (3-5 minutes), drain and set aside.
  • 02
  • Combine asparagus, radish, shallot, lemon juice, oil and potato in a large bowl, season to taste and toss gently to combine. Add trout, watercress and dill, toss to combine, scatter with horseradish and serve.
Note If French breakfast radishes are unavailable, substitute other radishes. David Moyle prefers Woodbridge smoked trout. If fresh horseradish is unavailable, serve without horseradish.
