Guangxi-Style Smoked Trout Salad

Guangxi-Style Smoked Trout Salad

This Guangxi-style smoked trout salad is inspired by a versatile pork salad by Spice Temple chef Andy Evans. It’s more a concept than a recipe; Andy usually makes it with char siu (see video below) and it’s just as delicious with cooked prawns, barbecued squid or even sashimi salmon or tuna. Add or substitute different Asian herbs to suit your taste or use whatever you have on hand.

Serves 2

Ingredients
  • 120g smoked rainbow trout fillet, skin off
  • ¼ cup raw peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon Chinkiang vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 cup coriander leaves and fine stems, washed and dried
  • 1 small red onion, shaved into very thin slivers
  • 1 green onion, finely sliced on the diagonal
  • Steamed jasmine rice, for serving
Method
  1. Flake trout into bite-sized pieces, cover and set aside for 30-60 minutes to allow it to come to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 160°C, spread peanuts and sesame seeds on separate oven trays and place in the oven for 15 minutes or so, stirring occasionally, until lightly coloured.
  3. Roughly chop peanuts, combine with sesame seeds and set aside.
  4. Combine vinegar, vegetable oil and soy sauce in a large bowl.
  5. Add trout, peanuts and sesame seeds then coriander, red onion and green onion and toss gently to combine.
  6. Pile onto a platter and serve with steamed rice.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

The whole Be Inspired experience has helped me love cooking again. I was sick of cooking the same old things - meal time is a lot brighter thanks to you Roberta.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

Thanks so much for the Fresh & Easy Meal, it was excellent. We regularly get another meal kit delivery – your offering is vastly superior and a similar price, so big ticks.

I'm a competent cook whose learned so much from the Recipes+Videos Packs. The recipes are yummy and Roberta’s video guidance offers so many little tips to improve flavour and organise the flow of preparation. I enjoy her warmth, sense of humour, and ability to giggle at herself when she occasionally messes up.
