  • 175g fusilli or other pasta
  • 100g frozen peas
  • 125g pack smoked trout fillets



    Freshwater trout: 

    Farmed rainbow trout has pretty, spotty skin…

  • 3 rounded tbsp 0% Greek yogurt
  • 2 rounded tsp horseradish sauce


  1. Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling water according to pack instructions, adding the peas for the last 3 mins. Meanwhile, flake the trout and set aside, then mix the yogurt with the horseradish, salt and pepper.

  2. Drain the pasta, then return to the pan and stir in the trout and yogurt, letting the heat of the pasta warm the sauce. Tastes great with a crisp green salad.

One of my most used recipes from Good Food as it is so easy! I usually susbtitute things - using different types of smoked fish, cream cheese rather than yogurt, adding broad beans and grated courgette. Very quick and very tasty!

We used strawberry yogurt and added a splash of lemon juice. Delicious.

Me and Neavesy filleted the whole trout, seasoned the trout with garlic and lemon and slowly fried untill golden.
We then added to the pasta and it was amazing.
We didn't use smoked trout just normal whole trout filleted and seasoned.
Very Nice Indeed.

This combination of flavours really didn't work for me.

I used smoked salmon for this recipe because it was on offer at my local supermarket.

I think this would be equally as good as a cold pasta salad.

We really enjoyed this quick, healthy recipe.
