Arrange the ciabatta slices on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and bake in a hot oven or under a preheated grill until golden brown and crispy. In a heated pan, sear the trout on all sides until golden brown outside and pink inside. Finely chop the anchovies, mix them with the mustard, lemon juice, capers and enough oil to form a salad dressing, tasting as you mix.

Arrange all the salad ingredients in a bowl or on a serving platter. Tear or cut the trout into bite-size pieces and drizzle the sauce over. Serve immediately.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
