Warm Potato Salad with Smoked Trout, Capers & Lemon Mayo Recipe

Warm Potato Salad with Smoked Trout, Capers & Lemon Mayo Recipe

Warm Potato Salad with Smoked Trout, Capers & Lemon Mayo

The featured recipe this month of warm potato salad with smoked trout, capers & lemon mayo comes from Kristen Jensen, co-author of Sláinte: The Complete Guide to Irish Craft Beer and Cider (2014), and Secretary of the Irish Food Writers’ Guild. You can find Kristen’s original version on page 80 of Fishwives, a cookbook by Goatsbridge, available from select bookstores or online.

Step 1

Place the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold water and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about ten minutes, until the potatoes are cooked through and tender when pierced with the tip of a knife. Drain well and allow to cool slightly – just so they stop steaming.

Step 2

Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, dill and a pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Transfer the warm potatoes to a mixing bowl and pour over the lemon mayonnaise, stirring to coat the potatoes evenly.

Step 3

Thinly slice the spring onions on the diagonal, including the green tops. Add to the potatoes along with the capers and stir together. Divide the potato salad between two shallow bowls and scatter the flaked trout and chopped hard boiled eggs, if using, on top. Season with another pinch of salt and pepper and serve while the potatoes are still warm.

Trout Goujons with Aoili Recipe

Rainbow Trout Goujons with Aioli Recipe

Goatsbridge Rainbow Trout Goujons with Aïoli

This month’s quick and tasty Trout Goujons with Aïoli recipe in Fishwives ~ A Cookbook by Goatsbridge, was submitted by Denise Walsh, our hardworking and dedicated Project Manager. Denise is a graduate of the world-famous three month Ballymaloe cooking course and she’s a passionate home cook who now helps us dream up many ways to cook and eat Goatsbridge trout. We hope you’ll enjoy this quick and easy recipe as much as we do.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 130ºC/250ºC/gas mark ½.

Step 2

To make the aïoli, place the egg yolks into a medium sized bowl. Combine the sunflower oil and olive oil in a measuring jug. Whisk the salt, mustard, white wine vinegar and crushed garlic into the yolks. Lay a tea towel on the counter and place the bowl on top. Taking a whisk in one hand and the jug of oil in the other, gradually drip the oil onto the yolks while whisking continuously; after a minute, they will begin to thicken. Do not rush or you will curdle the eggs. Any leftover aïoli will keep for a week covered in the fridge.

Step 3

Cut the trout length ways, checking for bones. If you find some bones you can trim them off. Then cut each strip into three pieces, approximately 4 cm (1½ in) in length. Place the seasoned flour in a wide dish, place the egg in another dish and finally the breadcrumbs in a third dish. Toss the trout strips in the flour first, shake off any excess, then dip in the beaten eggs and finally toss in the breadcrumbs until coated.

Step 4

Heat the oil in a deep-sided saucepan or a deep fat fryer until it reaches 200ºC/390ºF. Deep fry in batches, three to five at a time, until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in the preheated oven to keep warm. When all the trout has been cooked, pile onto warmed plates and serve with the aïoli and a green salad.

Step 2

In a large glass jar, combine 140 mls of the beetroot water with the vinegar and onion. Add the dill, the cooked beetroots and the whole boiled and peeled eggs. Cover and refrigerate. Leave for approximately one week to a month.

Step 3

To compose the salad, arrange the lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, green beans, herbs and spring onion in a pretty bowl, finishing with the eggs, olives, anchovies, and finally the trout.

Step 4

Combine ingredients bar dressing and pour over.

Courgette Fritters with Smoked Trout & Poached Egg Recipe

Courgette Fritters with Smoked Goatsbridge Rainbow Trout & Poached Egg Recipe

This week we’re sharing the first of several taster recipes from our newly published Fishwives Cookery Book from Goatsbridge, a fish recipe book that is now available from our online store.  This smoked trout recipe with courgette is one of Joanne Donohoe’s (AKA Fishwife Number 23) favourite quick fish recipes; we hope you’ll enjoy it too.

Step 1

To make the courgette fritters, place the grated courgette in a colander, or sieve, set over a bowl and sprinkle lightly with one teaspoon of salt. Allow to stand for ten minutes. Using your hands, squeeze out as much liquid as possible and transfer to a large bowl; add the flour, one egg, and the spring onions. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.

Step 2

Heat the oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, scoop four tablespoons of the courgette mixture into the pan, pressing them lightly into rounds and spacing them at least two inches apart. Cook the courgette fritters for two to three minutes, then flip and cook for another two minutes until golden brown and cooked throughout. Transfer to a paper towel and immediately sprinkle with salt.

Step 3

Meanwhile, poach the two remaining eggs for approximately four minutes, until runny, or to your preference. To assemble, divide the fitters between the plates, top with the smoked trout, the poached egg and the chives. Season with salt and pepper.

Cornish Trout Pie Recipe

Cornish Trout Pie Recipe

Goatsbridge Rainbow Trout Pie Recipe

This week we’re bringing you an unusual pie recipe all the way from Cornwall, England that was given to us by Colin Matthews.  Here’s what Colin says: I work as a film actor/extra in Cornwall, and only last month I worked with a chef from Rick Stein; I shared my recipe with him. He said “we put the potato on top.” I replied “yes, but with mine the juices soak into the potato.” I have been cooking for some 25 years – food to eat and not put into picture frames.

Step 1

Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4, 350ºF, 180°C and grease a pie dish that’s approx 21 cm x 14 cm x 6 cm in size.

Step 2

Wash the prawns and cut the trout fillets to bite sized chunks. Place in a large saucepan with the peas and just cover with milk. Add the chives, dill or parsley – just a little black pepper, then poach by bringing the milk to boil, just to bubble in the sauce pan, then allow to cool.

Step 3

Prepare the potatoes by boiling until soft, drain and just add a little butter and mash until there are no lumps.

Spread the mashed potato on the bottom of the Pyrex Dish, then grate some cheese over the mashed potato, then add the fish and prawn mixture over the potato and cheese.

Step 4

Roll out the pastry very thinly, place over the fish in the dish and turn in the corners, crack the egg into a dish, mix then brush over the pastry. Place the pie in the centre of the oven and cook for about 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown,

Step 5

Serve with steamed leeks, green beans or sweet corn; and to compliment a glass of chilled white wine.

Rainbow Trout Taco with Baked Sweet Potato

Goatsbridge Trout Taco with Baked Sweet Potato

Goatsbridge Rainbow Trout Recipe

This week Ciara Daly from Getting Fed Up has come up with a tasty fish taco, baked sweet potato and fresh salad that might just lure you away from the pre-prepared frozen fish counter. Using freshly filleted Goatsbridge trout Ciara has made fish nuggets that are bound to delight children and adults alike. If you try this recipe at home we’d be delighted if you left a review here afterwards.

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 430°F/ gas mark 7. Wash the sweet potatoes and chop them into wedges, keeping the skins on.

Step 2

Season with salt, pepper, paprika and a drizzle of oil before laying them out on a baking tray. Place the tray in the oven to cook for 30 – 40 minutes.

Step 3

To three separate dishes, add the flour, egg and breadcrumbs. Add a little salt to the flour, to help season the fish.

Step 4

Dip each of the fish pieces in the dishes containing the flour, followed by the egg and finally the breadcrumbs. Make sure to do it in that order as this will ensure the bread crumbs stick to the fish.

Step 5

Drizzle a little oil on another baking tray, add the fish nuggets and put the dish in the oven with the sweet potatoes. Turn the oven down to around 200°C/ 400°F/ gas mark 6.

Step 6

Leave to cook for 10 – 15 minutes depending on the size of your fish nuggets. Half way through cooking, turn the fish nuggets over so they will be golden brown all over.

Step 7

While the fish and sweet potatoes are cooking, you can begin preparing the fresh ingredients. Chop the tomatoes into halves or quarters, add them to a bowl followed by the garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, coriander stalks and a little salt and pepper. Slice the avocado and season with just a few drops of the lemon juice if there is any left over.

Step 8

Warm the wraps in the microwave for 30 seconds. When you’re ready to serve, spoon some of the crème fraîche on to the wraps. Arrange the little fish nuggets over the crème fraîche, add the tomatoes and a few avocado slices and garnish with some coriander leaf and chili. Finish it off with the baked potato fries and you’re ready to enjoy you meal!

Goatsbridge Trout with Lemon Risotto and butternut squash puree recipe

Goatsbridge Rainbow Trout Recipe with Lemon & Butternut Squash

Goatsbridge Rainbow Trout Recipe with Lemon Risotto & Butternut Squash Puree

This week’s flavoursome Rainbow Trout recipe comes from Ciara Daly of  the Getting Fed Up blog and it’s a lovely combination of creamy squash and citrus rice which, because of its lengthy ingredients list sounds much more complicated than it actually it is. We hope you’ll try it and if you do, please let us know how you get on in the review section!

Method

Step 1

Begin by making the purée. Simply add the butternut squash and chicken stock to a saucepan over a high heat. When the stock starts to boil, reduce the heat to low and leave to simmer for ten minutes until the butternut squash has become soft and tender.

Step 2

Drain the butternut squash and keep 1 tablespoon of the water with the butternut squashAdd the crème fraîche, salt and pepper and mix with a hand blender until you have a silky smooth purée.

Step 3

Begin the risotto by warming the stock in a large saucepan. Cover it so that it keeps warm. Place a large saucepan over a low to medium heat and add the oil, followed by the butter to a medium heat. Add the onion, celery and garlic and sauté until tender. Add the rice and stir for 2-3 minutes, turning the heat up to medium.

Step 4

Add the wine and stir until evaporated, followed by 500 ml of the chicken stock. It is important to keep stirring the rice until all the water has been absorbed.

Once the water has been absorbed by the rice, add remaining chicken stock 300ml or so at a time. Do not add it all in at once. Remember it is important to allow the stock to be absorbed by the rice before you add any more of it. Keep stirring so that the rice becomes creamy and tender, this should take about 30 minutes.

Step 5

Reserve the last 300 ml of the stock and keep it warm. Stir in cheese, butter, lemon juice and rind. Season the rice with salt and pepper. Cover and keep warm while you start on the fish.

Step 6

Place a large frying pan or skillet on a high heat. Season the fillets with salt and pepper. Add a tablespoon of oil to the pan, followed by the fish once it is hot. Make sure to place the fillets on the pan skin-side down. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes until the crust turns a golden-brown colour.

Turn the fillets over and cook for a further 2 minutes to cook all the way through. Add the knob of butter and use it to baste the fish while it finishes cooking.

Just before serving, stir in the last of the chicken stock so the risotto is creamy.

Step 7

Serve the risotto on a warmed plate, arrange the trout over it and finish by spooning the butternut squash purée on to the side of the plate for a final touch.
