Method for Vietnamese Noodle Salad with Trout
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 degrees F.
Place the trout on a baking tray and cook in the oven, on the middle shelf, for 15 minutes.
Mix the dressing ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Toast the peanuts in a dry pan, for 2-3 minutes until golden, and set aside.
Place the noodles in a bowl and pour boiling water over them. Leave to cook for 2 minutes and then drain and cool.
In a large bowl add the carrot, courgette, cabbage, spring onions, mint, coriander and cooled noodles. Pour over the dressing and mix so that everything is coated. Dish the salad up onto a serving platter or into bowls.
Once the trout is cooked, serve immediately on top of the salad and sprinkle over the toasted peanuts.
