Curing the fish

Place the ocean trout onto a plastic tray (or line a metal tray with baking paper).

Place the sea salt, sugar, dill and 3 tbsp of the lemon zest into a mixing bowl and combine well, then spread this salt mix over and underneath the trout.

Cover with cling film and place into the fridge and allow to cure for 8 to 12 hours.

Horseradish Crème Fraîche

Just before serving, place the crème fraîche, chives, horseradish and the remaining lemon zest into a mixing bowl, combine well and season with freshly cracked black pepper.

To serve, thinly slice across the fillet and arrange onto a serving plate, drizzle with crème fraîche and serve with freshly cut lemon.

the curing time will depend on the thickness of the fillet of trout, for thick fillets lean towards 12 hours

And to drink?

2020 Pinot Grigio

Pale straw in colour. A heady mixture of feijoa, apple skin and poached pear with hints of cinnamon and tea rose. Medium bodied with avours of poached pear and cinnamon. Soft and supple in a drinkable way, yet with enough weight and texture to match an array of dishes such as cured ocean trout with horseradish and avocado or warm salad of exotic mushroom, fennel and fried taro.

Real Food is for Real People...

We've put together this collection of recipes to show you how we eat around here. It's not really a coincidence that our food is a lot like our wine: authentic, approachable, and as unpretentious as we can possibly make it.

We'll keep adding to this library over the seasons, to give you loads of choice whatever the occasion you're cooking for.
