Salad of Smoked Trout, Pink Grapefruit, and Radicchio with Walnuts

  • FAST
  1. 1 cup cubed firm-textured white bread (1/2 inch)
  2. 1 garlic clove, minced
  3. 1 tablespoon olive oil or walnut oil
  4. 1 large pink grapefruit
  5. 1/3 cup heavy cream
  6. 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 3/4 pound radicchio, 12 large outer leaves reserved, the rest cut into 1/4-inch strips
  9. One 3/4-pound whole smoked trout—skinned, boned and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  10. 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (about 2 ounces)
  11. 2 teaspoons chopped fresh coriander (cilantro), plus additional leaves for garnish
  12. 3 small scallions, white part only, thinly sliced crosswise
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. On a baking sheet, toss the bread cubes with the garlic and olive oil. Toast for about 7 minutes, or until golden.
  2. Using a sharp stainless steel knife, peel the grapefruit, removing all the bitter white pith. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Set aside 6 sections; cut the remaining sections into 1/2-inch pieces.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the heavy cream and sherry vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss the radicchio strips with three quarters of the dressing. Add the smoked trout, walnuts, chopped coriander, scallions and the cut-up grapefruit sections. Season with salt and pepper and toss well.
  4. On each of 6 plates, arrange 2 radicchio leaves. Mound the salad in the center. Garnish with the croutons, coriander leaves and whole grapefruit sections. Drizzle with the remaining dressing and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Try a Pinot Blanc from Alsace Pinot Blanc or a Viognier.
