  • Goatsbridge Hot Smoked Trout with bulgur salad and spiced yogurt- by Aoife Coughlan 

4 people for lunch or 2-3 people for dinner


1-2 packs Goastsbridge Hot Smoked Trout

150g bulgur wheat

One small red onion finely chopped

1 fat garlic clove

Dried parsley and/or dill

1 stock cube

Half a red pepper

10-12 cherry tomatoes

Good quality low fat yogurt

Harissa paste

Salt, pepper, red wine vinegar, olive oil, lemon, salad to serve.

Put the bulgur, finely chopped onion, garlic clove, parsley and/or dill and stock cube in a pot, cover with water and bring to the boil. Cover with a lid and leave to cook on a medium heat for about 15 minutes or until most of the water has been absorbed. 

While this is cooking chop the red pepper in a dice and quarter the cherry tomatoes. 

For the yogurt dressing mix a couple of tablespoons of natural yogurt with a half teaspoon (or more depending on how hot you like it!) of harissa paste. Add salt and pepper to taste.

When the bulgur is cooked add a dash of red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the chopped pepper and tomato. Mix well.

Divide the bulgur salad between plates. Top with flaked Goatsbridge Hot Smoked Trout, drizzle with the spiced yogurt and serve with some mixed salad leaves and lemon wedge.
