Scottish Potted Trout

This is such a delicious traditional Scottish recipe for potted trout and very easy to make. I like it in the Winter months but it is equally good in the warmer months too. It travels well and goes nicely with toast, crackers and oatcakes. We enjoy it on toast triangles with a bowl of warm Scottish soup in the witner months and with a salad in the summer.

We like spicy food so I like it hot.
