  • 1 tbsp chopped dill
  • 80g good-quality crème fraîche, whipped


  1. Place the trout, skin-side down, into the flour. Using your hands, cover each fillet in a good layer of butter. Transfer to a baking tray, skin-side up, then set aside.

  2. To make the salsa, melt the lard or warm the oil in a frying pan over a low heat. Gently fry the bacon until crispy – about 15 mins. Lift it out with a slotted spoon and leave to drain on kitchen paper. Add the oil, capers, lemon zest and juice, chilli and honey to the bacon fat left in the pan. Warm gently for 2-3 mins to infuse all of the flavours.

  3. Heat the grill to medium-high, about 200C. Put the fish under for about 8-10 mins, basting every 2 mins. Once cooked and the skin is crispy, remove it and leave to rest for a few mins.

  4. In a pestle and mortar, gently crush the peas, then add them to the warm dressing, along with the dill. Stir to combine, add a pinch of salt, then put your fish on a serving plate. Spoon over the salsa, sprinkle the bacon bits on top and serve with a little whipped crème fraîche.
