Nordic Trout Salad


A Crunchy, Smoky Delight for All Occasions

Trout salad doesn't last long in our household. It's so irresistibly good that once you start, it's hard to stop! This recipe has become a family favorite, and I've served it on various occasions, from cozy breakfasts with sourdough bread to elegant brunch platters. But no matter how we enjoy it, one thing remains constant – it's those Nordic crisps that disappear the quickest. The combination of their crunchiness and the smoky trout spread is simply irresistible.

The Nordic Crisp Magic

Danes have a deep love for smoked fish, and when you pair it with Nordic crisps, magic happens. The seedy, crunchy goodness of these crisps complements the smokiness of the fish beautifully, creating a harmonious blend of textures and flavors.

A Delightful Brunch Platter

One of my favorite ways to serve this trout salad is as a platter, much like a charcuterie or cheese board. I spread the trout salad generously on a beautiful wooden cutting board and arrange the extras around it. Here's how to create a delightful brunch platter that's sure to impress:


  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 8 oz smoked trout
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • Juice from ½ lemon
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Creamy Base: Start by combining the Greek yogurt and mayonnaise in a mixing bowl. This creamy base forms the perfect canvas for the rest of the ingredients.

  2. Season to Taste: Season the mixture with a pinch of salt and pepper, adjusting to your preference.

  3. Veggies and Herbs: Add the diced celery, chopped red onion, and the fragrant chopped dill to the creamy base. These fresh ingredients bring a burst of flavor and a delightful crunch to the salad.

  4. The Star: Smoked Trout: Tear the smoked trout into bite-sized pieces and gently fold it into the mixture. The smokiness of the trout is the heart of this dish, and it blends beautifully with the creamy base.

  5. Capers and Lemon Zest: Don't forget to add capers for that tangy, briny kick. Squeeze the juice from half a lemon over the salad to brighten up the flavors.

  6. Final Mix: Carefully mix all the ingredients together, ensuring that the creamy base coats every morsel of trout and veggies.

  7. Serving Suggestions: Serve the trout salad with your choice of accompaniments. We love it with Danish rye bread and, of course, the Nordic crisps that disappear faster than you can imagine.
