Spinach, smoked trout and orange salad

It is just one these salads perfect for Summer. I keep doing it over and over again, and no one seems to be tired of it. Although I am pretty sure this is a Gordon Ramsay dish, I forgot where I found it. But, in any case, if you want to be very precise, this actually is a variation of Gordon’s original recipe, which called for rucola. Mr Caramelised isn’t so fussed about it, so to keep domestic harmony I promptly replaced it with fresh spinach leaves. In all honesty, I didn’t have much problems to let the rucola go…

Spinach, smoked trout and orange salad


  • 500g of fresh spinach leafs (or baby spinach, of available. The original recipe called for rucola)
  • 1 peeled orange, pith removed and segmented
  • 1 smoked trout cut in pieces (bite size)
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper to taste.


Spread the spinach in a large flat plate. In top of it sprinkle the orange and the trout. Season with olive oil balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
