JAMIE OLIVER'S ChalkStream Trout Crudo

SIMPLE BUT SUPER-IMPRESSIVE

TRY THIS QUICK RECIPE FOR A DELICIOUS STARTER, OR SIMPLY SERVE WITH A CHILLED GLASS OF WHITE WINE IF YOU’RE FEELING FANCY. QUALITY IS KEY HERE, SO YOU’LL NEED THE BEST FISH YOU CAN AFFORD. ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU EAT RAW FISH ON THE DAY YOU BUY IT, TOO.

SERVES 4 TOTAL TIME: 15 MINUTES

2 x 130g super-fresh trout fillets, from sustainable sources

1 fresh red chilli

1 heaped teaspoon baby capers

1 lemon

extra virgin olive oil

3 sprigs of dill (15g)

Place the trout fillets on a board, skin-side up. Carefully remove the skin with a sharp knife and discard. Cut the trout fillets into thin slices and arrange on a large plate. Finely slice the chilli (remove the seeds if you don’t like it too hot) and place in a bowl. Add the capers, finely grate in the lemon zest and squeeze in the juice. Season to perfection with sea salt and black pepper.

Spoon the dressing over the sliced trout, drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil and pick over the dill fronds. Serve straight away.

Try mixing up the flavours – coriander and lime, or parsley and grapefruit would also work well.
