– or heating – fish in the office is a notoriously unpopular move. Not

hot-smoked over oak, or lemon-and-pepper trout, which has been poached in
lemon-infused water to enhance its subtle flavours and delicate textures. As
convenient as it is delicious, serve it in a light summer salad (see our
desk-lunch recipe inspiration below), or with roast veg or mash as an easy
Thai papaya-and-trout summer
Slice 125 g mini cucumbers
and 1 baby cabbage very thinly and toss with 1 chopped red chilli, 1 T honey, 3
T sesame oil, 2 T lime juice and a pinch of salt. Top with half a slice papaya
and add 200 g Woolworths poached or smoked trout (hot or cold). For best
results, slice and add the papaya just before serving.
