Love this - so easy and quick but feels classy. Also: samphire is so delish.

Very nice, so quick and easy, just cook the samphire for a minute before adding the other ingredients. I made this for my 7yr old nephew who adores trout. He was delighted with this dinner and has asked me to make it next time he comes round. If samphire is hard to get hold of, fine green beans would be nice though not as salty
