Smoked Trout Tartare with Avocado Mango Salsa

© 2023 |

© 2023 |

Buttery, flaky smoked trout prepared in this manner is a wonderful variation of tartare. Crème fraîche, wasabi paste and lemon juice is mixed with fresh smoked trout and top with a fruity salsa made avocado, mango, red onion and chives. You can serve it on some freshly baked bread or on crunchy lettuce leaves if you want to go low carb. It makes an easy yet perfect starter or as a light dinner.

Avocado Mango Salsa
  • 2 Romaine lettuce hearts
  • 300 g Smoked trout fillets, skin removed
  • 60 g Crème fraîche
  • 1/4 tsp Wasabi paste
  • 1 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp Sesame seeds, optional
  • 1 Ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 Avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1 Red onion, peeled and diced
  • 15 g Chives, cut into thin rings
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Red pepper chilli, cut into rings (optional)
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  1. Clean lettuce hearts, wash, shake dry and remove individual leaves. Cut smoked trout into small cubes and mix with crème fraîche and wasabi. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  2. For the salsa, peel the mango, remove the flesh from the core and cut into small cubes. Peel and finely dice the onion. Halve and pit avocado, remove flesh from skin and dice finely. Wash chives, shake dry and cut into fine rolls. Mix diced avocado, mango, red onion and chopped chives. Add in olive oil, lemon juice, chilli pepper if using, salt and pepper.
  3. Place lettuce leaves on a large platter and place the smoked trout tartare on top. Spread the salsa over it, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

So nice that you have chives in the middle of Winter, I haven't seen it since summer LOL Although I do still have fresh basil in my garden due to winter being so freaking effing mild.

This looks so delicious. If you wanted to use bread I think it would even taste yummy in pita bread or some kind of wrap. hugs-Erika

sounds delicious, my husband and I have been talking about getting our little smoker out and doing some smoking-will try it out with a small whole turkey soon, and he loves smoked fish. I love trout but we moved away from a state park that we used to fish for trout-sigh

I used to find avocado greasy to eat. Then I was told I could not get fat by eating too much of avocado

Angie- I'm blown away with the look of that presentation. The avocado mango salsa sounds so delicious. It's Judee from Gluten Free A-Z Blog

this sounds so good angie. I don't eat mango but i could use nectarines I think. Delicious!

Lola Martínez 19/1/23 07:55

Rellenar las hojas de lechuga con este tartar tan bien surtido, es una de las mejores ideas que existen. Más de una vez las preparo así porque son sabrosas y sanas. Adopto tu tartar desde ahora mismo.
Un abrazo.

I never tasted smoked trout, but love fish.....
thank you for sharing recipe.

Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 19/1/23 08:24

I love my fish smoked, so together with the avocado and salsa dressing, this sounds so tasty. Mango is generally something I can take or leave, I'm not a big fan one way or the other, however, it probably complements the other flavours really well in this recipe! :)

Javier 19/1/23 09:06

Served on crisp lettuce looks so delicious!

Un'altra deliziosa insalata, adoro l'avocado!!!

Chef Mimi 19/1/23 15:23

Oh I wish I had all of that in front of me right now! And it’s so pretty. Smoked trout is wonderful, and I usually just eat it as is, or make it into a dip. This is wonderful.

Bill 19/1/23 16:32

Looks great and delicious.

Angie, We both love smoked trout so this creation is definitely a winner! FYI, Dawn Marie worked with me more than 25 years ago. Her parents have both passed and we're her 'adopted' parents. She's also a successful tech executive... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
