These are some of my favorite ingredients, however you can pick the ingredients that you like best from this recipe for Smoked Trout and add variations to create your favorite recipe for Smoked Trout.


  • Soft Herbed Cheese (such as Boursin)
  • Fresh Arugula (washed and dried well)

  • Rustic Bread (cut at a slight angle for more surface area)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (to brush and toast bread)
  • Smoked Trout – Natural Smoked Tasmanian Trout (this can be sliced thinly or gently pulled apart for your smoked trout recipe)


Prepare your ingredients and lay them out to easily assembling your Paninis completely before brushing the bread and adding it to you heated skillet and Panini grill.

Take your sliced rustic bread and spread a layer of your soft herbed cheese on both slices. Add a small bunch of arugula and red onion to one side and top with the Smoked Trout that has been gently pulled apart or sliced thinly. Make sure you bring everything to the very edge of the bread because you want to savor every last bite. Place the second slice on top with the cheese side down.

Brush the Extra virgin Olive Oil on one side of the bread and place that face down on your skillet or Panini grill. Brush the second half of bread while it's facing up. Grill on low heat until lightly toasted, then remove from the heat and slice on a vertical angle to serve.
