  • ½ a 250g tub Quark
  • ½-1 tsp horseradish sauce
  • squeeze lemon juice

Quark is a low-fat, low-salt, soft cheese. You could also use light soft cheese or half-fat crème fraîche.Tip
Trout is a fabulous fish. It has a lovely, delicate flavour and, while an excellent source of those all-important omega-3 oils, contains just a third of the calories of salmon.


  1. Flake the fish into a large bowl, then stir in the quark and horseradish sauce to taste. Season with black pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.

  2. Toast the bread, then top each piece with cucumber slices and watercress. Spoon half the trout pâté on top of each and serve with halved cherry tomatoes on the side.
