  • 5 to 7 Tbs. crème fraîche (depending on how moist the trout is and on your personal taste)
  • 3 Tbs. chopped fresh chives
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 boneless smoked trout, skin discarded (to yield about 8 oz.)

Remove any bones from the trout and break it up into small pieces. Add the crème fraîche and mix with a fork, taking care to shred rather than mash the trout. Fold in the chives and a generous amount of ground pepper. Serve with freshly made croutons or toasts.
