Smoked Trout Salad + Citrus, Avocado and Miso Ranch

Serves 4  | Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time: none (if using fresh trout/salmon add 12-15 minutes)

 Lot’s of healthy fats and a zesty take on traditional ranch in this dish. Absolutely use fresh trout or salmon if smoke like flavors don’t meet your palate.

  • 1/2 bunch chives, minced
  • 60g miso paste
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1 pound smoked trout (or salmon), flaked
  • 2 cara cara oranges, skin removed, and sliced into 1/4-inch halves
  • Mixed greens; like equal parts arugula, baby kale and spinach
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • To serve: toasted seeds or nuts (like pumpkin seeds or almonds)

Chef Tips

Citrus can be as varied as you would like; grapefruit, orange, pomelo etc.


Step 1 (for the miso ranch)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until combined. Taste to your enjoyment.

Add greens into a large bowl. Dress with a little miso ranch. Season with salt and pepper. Mix to combine. Fold in the trout, oranges, and avocado. Serve family style and sprinkle with seeds and nuts (or both).
