Summer Daze Smoked Trout New Potato Salad

Summer daze smoked trout potato salad ideal for those summer days eating Al Fresco upon your terrace ( in my case my decking )

Summer I admit is rather confused at the minute and I have worn my winter coat this week . Summer will be here I'm sure of it ~ halycon days are the long fun filled days we remember from our childhood.

Fry the bacon bits till lovely and crispy , I got my bacon bits from the village farm shop and they were £1.65 , then if you wish also warm through the smoked trout ( you don't have to but it does gives a beautiful roundness to the dish. next mix them together . Combine this with the cooked new potatoes.

  1. It is sad that my heating still on! So cold in June! We need our sunshine back! Your smoked trout look gorgeous!

  3. That sounds lovely - if only the sun would come back now ;-)

  4. looks fantastic but unfortunately im not a smoked fan x

  5. I absolutely fish in all forms, so this is right up my street x

  6. I have to admit I am not a fan of any fish but the dressing sounds delicious

  7. I really love fish, but trout is one that I can not deal with, that and salmon. I wonder if they are closely related. We have just got a village deli, the prices are very high, but I try and buy a little from there

  14. Great dish for a warm day and getting the ingredients locally is my favourite. Mich x
