Smoked Trout?

Someone just gave me half a package of smoked trout from Costco. It has a nice flavor, but is quite salty. Should I use it in a salad or sandwich...or...?

  1. you could also mix it with cream cheese and a little cream, maybe some scallions to make a spread. i love smoked trout with apples and mustard.

      I make trout salad - mayonnaise, chopped celery, chopped granny smith apples, chives, lemon juice, a healthy dose of horse radish, plus some chopped nuts - pecans or almonds depending on what I have around.

    2. Smoked trout on an everthing bagel with cream cheese. The finest breakfast that ever happened.

      1. I love smoked trout. This is a great recipe from Epicurious:

        IMO, the dill is totally optional.

        Another yummy thing is a salad made with granny smith apples (no mayo, more of a composed salad) and smoked trout-- I think there is a recipe for this on Epicurious too. The apple would probably cut the salt.


        1. Scramble with a couple eggs.

          1. Almost any smoked fish (specially trout) goes great with a horseradish cream sauce.

              It makes a great salad with cucumbers, dill, and green onions in a sour cream dressing. I had it at a wonderful, fancy restaurant in DC in the Union Station...can't remember what it was called.
