Trout Recipes?

British trout has an unmistakeable delicate, clean taste which lends itself to a multitude of dishes. Think pasta, soups, traybakes, curries, stir-fries and pies – anything goes. It’s also very lean and packed with essential nutrients so why not make it a part of your regular diet?

So easy to cook, trout can be pan-fried, poached, baked, barbecued or roasted. Choose from super quick boneless fillets, a side of trout or a whole fish. You can also get tasty smoked trout, perfect for bagels, pates and salads. Find trout in supermarkets, fishmongers and online.
