    Smoked trout salad with boiled eggs

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    250g new potatoes, larger ones halved
    4 Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Medium Eggs
    ½ cucumber, finely sliced
    ½ red onion, finely sliced
    2 tbsp white wine vinegar
    1 tsp honey
    130g pack watercress, rocket and spinach salad
    125g hot smoked rainbow trout fillets
    3 tbsp Greek yogurt
    Handful chopped dill


    1. Put the potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with cold water, add a pinch of salt and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes; drain and set aside. Meanwhile, carefully lower the eggs into another saucepan of simmering water and cook for 7 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool in a bowl of cold water.

    2. Put the cucumber and onion in a bowl with the vinegar, honey and a pinch of salt. Toss together and set aside.

    3. Arrange the salad and potatoes on a plate, then flake over the trout. Lift the onion and cucumber from the pickling juice and scatter over the salad. Gently stir the yogurt into the pickling juice, then stir in most of the dill to make a dressing; spoon over the salad. Peel and halve the boiled eggs, then place on top of the salad and scatter over the remaining dill.

    Cook’s tip

    Simmering eggs for 7 minutes gives a set that’s halfway between soft- and hard-boiled – just right for summer salads.
