24 HRS

Cook time

20 MIN





Truly a festive dish to remember – a delightful layering of flavours with wow factor in every bite. The charmingly pink stained trout brings both an earthiness from the beetroots and a complementary zing from the gin and lemon, perfectly paired with golden crispy potato cakes, a dollop of creamy herby labneh, crowned with salmon pearls. For absolute perfection add a crisp glass of prosecco.
