2 medium, finely chopped

carrot(s)

1 large, finely chopped

garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

ground paprika

2 tsp

Trout, skinless, steamed or poached

200 g, flaked, smoked

1 individual, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and carrot and cook, stirring, for 3–5 minutes or until onion is softened. Add the garlic, paprika and corn and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the creamed corn and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Notes

You can use hot-smoked ocean trout fillet (available from some supermarkets and delicatessens) instead of the smoked trout.
