    Trout, gin blackberries & horseradish jackets recipe | Waitrose

    • Gluten Free
    • Christmas
    • Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes, plus soaking and cooling

    Serves: 30


    3 juniper berries
    170g blackberries, larger ones cut into halves or thirds
    3 tbsp sloe gin
    650g bag small charlotte potatoes, halved lengthways
    2 tbsp olive oil
    75g soured cream
    2 tbsp freshly grated horseradish
    1⁄2 lemon, zest
    100g smoked rainbow trout or salmon, cut into strips 


    1. Crush the juniper in a small bowl; add the blackberries and gin, stirring to coat. Leave to soak for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

    2. Preheat the oven to 200 ̊C, gas mark 6. Toss the potatoes with the oil, season, and scatter on a large baking tray. Roast for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, cool for 10 minutes, then use a teaspoon to scoop out the flesh and put in a bowl. Return the skins to the oven for 10 minutes to crisp up.

    3. Mash the potato flesh with the soured cream, horseradish and lemon zest; season. Spoon the mixture into the skins; add a curl of smoked trout to each. Drain the berries and place on top, with a sprig of dill, if liked.
