Step 2:

Once cooled, push in the centre and spread with labneh – labneh is a strained yoghurt.

To make labneh:

Season plain Greek yoghurt with salt and pepper, then place into a cheese cloth and hang in the fridge overnight to drain.

Step 3:

Top the yoghurt with smoked trout, fennel, apple and rocket.

How to smoke trout:

Give your fresh trout a quick wash and then put them into the brine for 24 hours in the fridge. Then, take them out of the brine and give them a good wash. Dry them off. Place fresh rosemary inside them. Lay them on the racks and place them into the smoker. It should take about an hour to smoke them.
