Smoked Trout and Bulgar Salad

This was a lovely and fresh tasting barley salad. Just be careful when you drain the barley for the second time that you drain thoroughly and maybe leave for a bit to dry and I ended up with a little water in the bottom of my box.

Smoked Trout and Bulgar Salad (from Good Food Magazine August 2005)
(Serves 2)

100g bulgar wheat
juice 1/2 lemon
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tomato, halved, deseeded and diced
4 spring onions, finely sliced
20g parsley, leaves roughly chopped
handful fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
2 smoked trout fillets
2 tbsp Greek yogurt
1 tsp chopped dill
Cook bulgar wheat according to pack instructions, and leave to cool. Make a dressing: whisk the lemon juice, garlic and olive oil together and season to taste.

Tip the bulgar wheat into a bowl, add the tomatoes, spring onions, parsley and mint. Pour the dressing in and stir to combine. Flake the trout into chunks –discarding skin and bone. Gently fold into the salad.

Mix the yogurt and dill together in a small bowl, adding enough water to give the consistency of pouring cream. Season to taste and serve alongside the salad to drizzle on top.
