Smoked Trout Salad

smoked trout salad

This smoked trout salad recipe is one of the easiest ways to turn smoked trout into something to be proud of. I always have a can or two in my pantry so that I can whip this up as a snack or an impromptu appetizer for unexpected visitors.

I always use Trader Joe’s canned smoked trout. It’s priced well, very tasty, and (perhaps most importantly) HAS NO BONES. If you want to use normal, non-canned smoked trout and you have a lot of time on your hands and want to torture yourself by picking through and removing the hair-thin bones, knock yourself out. That’s just not my idea of fun.
