Inspired by the notable change in weather, it’s finally time to trade in those soups and meaty dishes for a refreshingly light and healthy dining option. A zesty fusion of fresh seafood with a citrusy essence, the Smoked Trout on Toast is a straightforward and affordable alternative this spring to send you into a seasonal frenzy. Whether you’re entertaining guests or serving your family dinner, this exquisite delicacy will be sure to leave them craving more!
You Will Need:
(Makes 1 1/3 cups)
8 ounces, boneless/skinless smoked trout, roughly flaked
3 ounces mascarpone, softened
½ cup sweet corn kernels
3 tablespoons finely diced shallots
1 ½ tablespoons lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon mined tarragon
2 teaspoons thinly sliced chives
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper
Place all ingredients, (except crostini and microgreens) into a mixing bowl and mix together with a fork, flaking the fish as much as you can, but not overworking the mixture. Adjust seasonings.
Top each crostini with a couple tablespoons of the trout mixture and top with micro greens and more lemon zest, if desired.
We recommend that you sample the seafood snack with Dark Horse Wine’s Sauvignon Blanc to reinforce the crisp taste of spring.
