Free Healthy Recipe - Smoked Trout and Lima Bean Salad

Dairy free, Low fat, Low GI, Wheat Free

Copyright John Paul Urizar

This delicious salad can be whipped up in minutes and makes a very economical meal. Smoked trout is readily available from fish shops and usually comes whole and vaccum packed. It's a rich strong tasting fish and a little goes a long way, so while it is high in salt from the smoking process you don't need to eat much, nor do you need to add any additional sea salt to season.

2 cups rocket
½ cup fresh mint, roughly chopped
½ cup curly parsley, roughly chopped
1 400g can lima beans, drained
½ red onion finely chopped
2 kaffir lime leaves finely sliced
180 grams smoked trout
50 ml olive oil
1 lime zest and juice
1 large clove garlic, peeled and bruised
black pepper to season

Wash and prepare the salad and herbs and set aside in a bowl.

Remove the head and skin from the trout and break the flesh into pieces carefully removing any bones.
Combine the beans, onion, kaffir lime leaf, lime zest and smoked trout. Mix the oil, lime juice, horseradish, garlic clove and black pepper in a small jar. Use Ĺ the dressing to toss through the green leaves before arranging on individual plates. Spoon the bean and trout mixture over the greens and add some more dressing over the bean mix.

Note: Lima beans are otherwise known and butter beans. They are recognizable by their large white kidney shape and have a creamy buttery texture - without the fat of butter. Like other legumes, the soluble fibre in lima beans is believed to help reduce high levels of LDL cholesterol in the blood.
