Southern Sundays: Smoked Trout Flatbread

Apr 23 2013

by Jennifer Glover


You may be asking what makes this “southern” since trout can be found anywhere, but this particular trout came from just up the road in North Carolina from a company called Sunburst Trout Farm. If you remember a couple months ago I ran across trout sausage gravy and biscuits (YUM!!!) at a restaurant in Brevard, NC and was immediately addicted! I bought a smoked trout filet recently with the intention of making the salad with black lentils (the one I had last year in NYC), but I went with a flatbread instead. I don’t know how in the world I got the idea to make this, but it randomly popped in my head so I decided to run with it. Glad I did too! This is so easy to make and it was really good! I had it in mind that this would be a great spring appetizer if you were having a dinner party, but after I made it and had a bite, it would be a great any time of the day. Particularly at brunch. Little side salad or a bowl of fruit and Poof! Breakfast, brunch/lunch or dinner is ready to go.

Smoked salmon could be used as an alternative to trout. Either would be great!

Smoked Trout Flatbread

serves 4 for a meal, about 8 for an app

1 package of refrigerated pizza dough

8 oz of whipped cream cheese

juice of 1/2 lemon

2 Tbsp of chopped fresh dill

1/4 cup of green onions

salt and pepper

1 package of smoked trout (1 large filet)

olive oil

3 asparagus spears (optional to shave over top)

Roll out the dough into the shape of a rough rectangle. Or whatever shape you want. Lightly grease a baking sheet with a little olive oil. Spread the dough out and bake for 10-15 minutes on 350 until it has lightly browned. Let it cool completely.

While the crust is cooking, mix together the cream cheese, lemon juice, dill and green onions. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

When the crust is cooled, spread with the cream cheese mixture. Remove the skin off the trout filet and crumble over the flatbread.

If you’d like to add some green interest to it you can shave asparagus spears with a vegetable peeler over the top.
