Ingredients

Steps

01.

Sprinkle trout with 1 tsp each sugar and salt. Set aside 10 mins.

02.

Line wok with two layers foil. In a bowl, combine remaining sugar rice and tea. Add to wok. Cover loosely with foil and a tight ñ fitting lid. Heat on medium 8-10 mins until starting to smoke (see tip).

03.

Place trout skin-side down on a small wire rack over wok. Put lid on. Smoke 12-15 mins until opaque.

04.

SALAD: In a bowl, combine pak choy, radish, apple and cucumber. In a jug, whisk remaining ingredients. Season.

05.

Flake trout over salad, drizzle with dressing and serve with lime wedges.

TIP: When smoking fish, be careful not to have the heat up too high as the sugar can burn.
