Twice cured ocean trout with horseradish dressing

Version 2

This festive favourite is always a hit. My recipe was inspired by this one by Jamie Oliver. I prefer ocean trout as flavour is more subtle than salmon, allowing the nuances of both cures to shine through. Allow up to 3 days to complete the process, and if you have more time, then keep curing for 2 days per cure. Enjoy.
