This colourful dish is so morish. I dare say it will become part of your cooking repertoire once you have tried it.

  • 1 tablespoon toasted Pine Nut

  • 100 g dried orecchiette pasta (100g per person)

  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil

  • 2 golden shallots finely sliced

  • 1 teaspoon hot Chilli Flake

  • 5 Anchovies

  • 0.5 cup smoked Trout flesh

  • 1 Garlic Clove crushed

  • 1 tablespoon chopped Italian Parsley

  • grated Pecorino Cheese

  • sea salt

  • cracked Pepper

  • Lemon (optional)


  • 1.

    Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until aldente.

  • 2.

    Meanwhile, heat olive in a frying pan with the onion, garlic and anchovies and cook gently until softened and broken down to a paste.

  • 3.

    Add the broccolini, pinenuts, chilli, parsley and plenty of pepper and toss until hot.

    Drain off the pasta and place into the sauce mixture, add the trout, and grate over the pecorino. Add a squeeze of lemon if you wish and serve.

Upon reading the recipe it sounded exactly what I needed to knock off a pkt of smoked trout I had in the fridge, but doubted it would become a part of my "cooking repertoire". After making it for dinner tonight, and making a couple of small adjustments, my husband has ordered me to make it again, and I know I will. We LOVED it! It was enough for 2 adults, but no leftovers. We tend to enjoy saucy pastas moreso, so I added a 300ml tub of thickened cream towards the end. I also increased the garlic to 3 cloves and added 2 extra anchovies. This one's a keeper!
