Smoked Trout Noodle Soup. Not as strange as it sounds, smoked trout has a meaty texture similar to chicken. And the rich, smoky flavor is the perfect match for a soup thick with noodles.

Smoked Trout Noodle Soup

Start to finish: 30 minutes/Servings: 6

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • Large sprig fresh rosemary
  • 6 cups (1 1/2 quarts) chicken broth
  • 2 cups elbow pasta
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 2 scallions, whites and greens, chopped
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 8-ounce package smoked trout

In a large saucepan over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the garlic, carrots, onion, celery, peas, thyme and rosemary. Saute for 5 minutes.

Add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Add the pasta and cook for 7 to 8 minutes, or until barely tender. Remove and discard the rosemary stem. Add the spinach and scallions and heat for 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper.

Using a fork, flake and break up the trout into large bite-size chunks. Ladle the soup into serving bowls, then pile a bit of the trout in the center of each.
