Quick to prepare with little washing up - Sounds like the perfect summer midweek meal, to me. Which is why I thought I would share it with you. Who wants to spend too much time in the kitchen especially when the sun is shining.
The potatoes are part-cooked in the oven before the fish is added for the remaining cooking time. Once cooked the fish is set aside briefly and the potatoes crushed and tossed with a sharp piquant dressing which compliments the oiliness of the trout perfectly.
