Makes about 12 canapés

Prep time 10 mins

Cooking time 10 mins


  • 1 British trout fillet
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • 1 pinch chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon tomato purée
  • 1/4 of a lemon for squeezing
  • 1 small baguette
  • 50ml extra virgin olive oil
  • A handful of good black olives
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • 1 sprig flat leaf parsley
  • 1 sprig basil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt and pepper


Pre heat the oven – 180 c


  • Season the trout fillet with salt and pepper, thyme leaves and a pinch of chilli flakes. Mix the tomato purée with a squeeze of lemon juice and spread this over the trout.
  • Bake the fish in the oven for 10 minutes and leave to cool to room temperature.
  • Slice the baguette into thin slices and drizzle with a little olive oil and season. Place these on a baking sheet and bake until golden – around 5 minutes should do it.
  • Pit the olives and roughly chop, place them in a small mixing bowl and add the lightly chopped capers, roughly chopped basil and parsley, and a dash of oil.
  • Flake the cooked trout into the bowl and stir gently to dress everything together.
  • Rub the cut garlic clove onto the crostini. Place heaped spoonfuls of the mix onto the crostini slices and serve. Also makes an excellent addition to garlicky flatbreads or stirred into pasta for a quick and simple lunch dish.
