Serve with it boiled new potatoes and a simple creamy dressing made from mascarpone, Greek yoghurt, lemon juice and dil. This delicious dinner is so easy to make, healthy and perfect as a romantic dish for two.

If you canít find trout, use salmon fillets instead


  1. With a very sharp knife, fillet the rainbow trout by removing the head, tail, fins and spine.
  2. Add a little butter to a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the fish skin-side down for approx. 5 mins. Do not turn them over. Instead leave the skin to crisp and watch for the top to turn a delicate shade of pink.
  3. Sprinkle the flesh side with finely chopped dill, chopped zest of one lemon and a little ground black pepper.
  4. When the fillets are cooked through, drizzle with the freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon.
  5. Make the dressing by mixing together a dollop of mascarpone and Greek yoghurt, flavoured with chopped dill, lemon zest and lemon juice. Serve with boiled new potatoes.
