Nature provides

Just like you find dock leaves growing near nettles, so river mint grows near to where trout swim. Put a sprig of mint in the cavity to offset any muddy taste.
  • Gut the trout as soon as possible
  • Keep them cool until you're ready to smoke them
  • Rub them lightly with salt and brown sugar
  • After about 2 hours rinse them off and pat them dry
  • Rub them with olive oil
  • Put a sprig of river mint in the cavity
  • Smoke them for about 10 minutes depending on size.
Eat them slowly, savouring the taste, and picking the flesh from the bones.
