Woman's Weekly recipe This simple trout salad with a creamy tomato dressing is a light and healthy lunch. It only takes 40 mins to rustle up and is enough for 2 people. For an even healthier spin poach the fish - this will make it extra soft and flavoursome too. Season with ground pepper and serve immediately. The delicious, sweet dressing can be used for other salads as well, as it really compliments the fish. You could try swapping trout for other fish instead like seabass or salmon.
