The fishy salad you can eat at the office…

… Without your colleagues taking you to HR

0

Eating – or heating – fish in the office is a notoriously unpopular move. Not anymore. Hot-smoked or poached trout is ready to eat and won’t offend your colleagues’ sensibilities. Try sweet chilli-and-lime trout, which has been 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 midweek dinner.

Thai papaya-and-trout summer salad

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.
