Smoked Trout Salad with Escarole and Persimmons

This everyday lettuce salad is given a gourmet make-over with the addition of smoked rainbow trout, cherry radishes and persimmons. I’ve paired it with a creamy, tangy mustard vinaigrette that really brings out the best flavour of the smoked fish which will also be great with curly endivie or with butter lettuce or peppery arugula. If you like, add some jammy boiled eggs or boiled potatoes to the salad if want it a little heartier and more substantial.

Mustard VinaigretteSalad
  • 3/4 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp Red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 120 ml Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 250 g Smoked trout, skin and bones removed
  • 1 Ripe yet firm persimmon, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 150 g Escarole (or curly endivie), torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 8-10 Cherry radishes, halved
  • Dill sprigs
  • Lemon wedge
  1. In a small bowl, whisk Dijon mustard, vinegar and lemon juice together. Slowly add in olive oil in a steady stream, whisking constantly until all the oil is added and dressing is creamy and emulsified. Season with the salt and pepper.
  2. Pile the escarole salad leaves on two plates and divide the persimmon wedges and cherry radishes between them. Flake over the smoked trout. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad and garnish with the dill and lemon wedge.

I love trout-when we lived at our woods home we were about 40 minutes drive away from a state park to fish trout in-I miss that
we have a smoker still we were gifted some pheasant thinking of smoking them-any recipe ideas for pheasants I have had those in years and years

escarole is my favorite I cant always find it but love this green!

Jeff the Chef 2/1/22 17:51

What a treat! I love smoked salmon. That you've paired it with something naturally sweet, like persimmons, sounds really interesting. I think I'd love the soft boiled egg option.

Bill 2/1/22 18:01

Looks like a salad I would enjoy.

David 2/1/22 19:08

Angie, What a great salad! We both love smoked trout but it is hard to find around here. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

We (as a family) love Salad and fish combination. Looks delicious and healthy.

The salad is very elegant and would make a perfect dinner party salad. The quote is perfect for the beginning of the New Year's resolution period.

The persimmon is an interesting addition to this beautiful looking salad. I love all the colors and flavorful dressing.

My name is Erika. 3/1/22 02:15

This looks fresh and yummy. And I've never tried a persimmon, but fruit in a salad is always a good combo.

The Yum List 3/1/22 03:48

I do love persimmons when they are perfectly ripe.

mjskit 3/1/22 04:30

Our local butcher used to sell a delicious smoked trout but I haven't seen it for a couple of years. I would love to find some and make this delicious salad Happy 2022 Angie! A great dish to start the year with.

I haven't used Escarole lettuce before, so I shall be checking that one out when I next shop, although I might swap it out for Arugula lettuce, which I love for its flavour.

Whilst I like trout fillets, I might also be tempted to swap those out for salmon, or lightly smoked salmon fillets, which we both like.

A great start to a healthy January. A Very Happy New Year to you and yours and Stay Safe :)

Salad with fish, smoked trout must be so good and adding the persimmon looks delicious and so inviting. Happy new year dear Angie.

From Argentina I wish you have a very good year 2022 and that we continue to share everything that enriches us: knowledge, travel, mutual experiences
In the Patagonia of southern Argentina there are very good trout to fish and in hatcheries

Happy 2022! Found some great-quality smoked salmon in the store recently and love it in salads too.

We eat first of all with our eyes - your plating surely makes one reach and try ! Must admit I have not used persimmons too oft in my salads - must see whether they are in season Down Under ! Thanks !
