Nutritional values

The protein of trout and the vitamins A, C, D and E from vegetables and fruits form a strong team. It strengthens and supports muscles, brain, eyes, bones, heart and vessels for a smooth functioning.

Similarities here are by no means accidental: the salad contains the same ingredients as the famous guacamole cream. Do it like the Mexicans do and be sure to take nice ripe avocados so that you have the full, fine aroma.
