    • 4 whole rainbow trouts, belly open and gutted
    • 8 rashes of smoked streaky bacon
    • 1 garlic clove, peeled and cut in half
    • Olive oil and butter for greasing
    • For the almond pesto:
    • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
    • Small bunch of fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 50g manchego cheese
    • 50g white almonds
    • 150ml extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for cooking
    • Salt and pepper


    Even Hemmingway mentioned Trucha a la Navarra in honour of a friend that died in the famous running of the bulls that takes place in Navarra’s capital Pamplona. A simple dish to make, using whole trout filled with smoked streaky bacon and baked in the oven. The fish is then served with a drizzle of nutty almond pesto.


    1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.
    2. Rub the inside of each trout with a piece of garlic. Place two slices of the streaky bacon inside each trout and place on a baking tray that has been greased with butter, drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle some sea salt and a few turns of black pepper.
    3. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the fish is cooked through – the eyes will have turned white and the flesh will be soft to touch.
    4. For the almond pesto, place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until well mixed but the pesto is still coarse.
    5. Serve the baked trout with a spoonful of the pesto.
