We buy local trout from Houghton Springs Farm in Dorset. It’s harvested at the perfect size to serve whole, ideal for grilling or baking. Life in its natural, spring-fed, freshwater ponds gives Houghton Springs trout a delightful nutty flavour, more subtle than salmon, with firm, pink-to-orange flesh and small flakes. A great source of Omega-3 oils, it also has comparatively less fat than other oil-rich fish.

Our whole trout are typically 450g-600g. The smaller fish are a generous main course for one, larger fish should serve two.

We buy our trout direct from aquaculture pioneer Hans Hoff, at Houghton Springs Farm, near Blandford Forum in Dorset. Nationally recognised as a leader in his field, Hans prides himself on the high quality of the spring-fed water at Houghton Springs, which, along with the expertise of his team, ensure his trout never have that earthy taste that some don’t like.

Trout is the basis for a huge variety of much loved recipes, like trout Meunière or baked with bacon and almonds. More recently, there’s also been a trends towards using stronger, spicier flavours. It’s a versatile fish that can be sautéed, grilled or baked en papillote, and also lends itself well to cold or hot smoking. Trout pairs well with garden herbs, almonds, lemon and white wine.
