Here’s a different way to serve fresh trout – with lip-smacking bacon and a handful of toasted flaked almonds.  This is a quick and easy recipe – ready in around 15 mins.


  • 4 fresh trout fillets
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 150g smoked streaky bacon
  • 200g bag mixed salad leaves
  • 25g toasted flaked almonds
  • French dressing to drizzle


  1. Preheat the grill to high and line the grill pan with lightly oiled foil. Season 4 fresh trout fillets, place on the lined grill pan and squeeze over the lemon juice. Grill for about 8 min, carefully turning halfway, until just cooked through. Flake the fish into chunks, discarding the skin.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Finely slice the streaky bacon, add to the pan, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 min, until golden and crisp. Drain on kitchen paper.
  3. Divide the salad leaves between 4 plates and top with the trout pieces. Scatter over the bacon and almonds. Drizzle with dressing, season to taste and serve with lemon wedges, if you like.
