Warm Fingerling Potato and Smoked Trout Salad

 

Notes: Large salt-cured capers, sold in specialty food shops, open up dramatically when fried, but smaller, brine-packed ones will work too. Fingerling potatoes are available in farmers' markets and grocery stores from midsummer through early winter. Prep and cook time: about 30 minutes.

What you will need

2 tablespoons salt-cured or drained canned capers (see notes)

2 pounds fingerling potatoes (1 by 2 in.; see notes) or other thin-skinned potatoes (2 in. wide), scrubbed and halved lengthwise

8 ounces smoked trout

1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground pepper

1 tart green apple (about 5 oz.), such as Granny Smith, rinsed, cored, and thinly sliced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

Sour cream (optional)
