3. While the eggs are cooking, blanch the asparagus in another pan of boiling salted water for a minute or two (the time will depend on the thickness of the spears so check them as they cook). When you’re happy with them, drain away the water.

4. Divide the salad leaves between four plates, top each with the trout fillets, the eggs and the asparagus and season well. Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over.
