  • Remove the skin from the smoked trout and flake it into a mixing bowl.
  • Finely chop the capers, gherkins, red onion and parsley, adding to the mixing bowl along with the lemon zest, cream cheese, Greek yoghurt and black pepper.
  • Mix everything together well and pop a teaspoonful on top of each cucumber slice. Garnish with a little extra parsley, if you like.


  • This trout mix also makes a delicious pate to serve with crackers or toast.
  • You can swap the smoked trout for smoked mackerel or hot smoked salmon.
  • Dairy-free – switch the yoghurt and cream cheese to soft nut cheese and nut yoghurt such as almond or cashew. 
  • Store the trout mix in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. It can also be frozen; just give it a good stir once it has defrosted.
