Smoked Trout Salad with wild rice

1-1 1/2 pounds smoked lake trout fillets
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/4 - 1/2 cup fresh chives, finely chopped
1 tsp. fresh dill, chopped
1 cup wild rice
2 cups water
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons horseradish
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. anchovy pasteĀ 
paprika to color garnish
large leaves of kale, chard, or similar ornamental lettuce
freshly sliced lemon wedges, de-seeded
tomatoe slices

Rice:Combine cold water, chicken stock and rice. Bring to a boil for five minutes. Remove from heat and let stand covered for twenty minutes. Fluff with fork and chill for at least one hour.

Salad: Remove skin and bones from smoked lake trout. Gently flake the fillets. They should be firm, but delicate. Fold in the cheese, chives, and dill and mix well.

Sauce: Blend the mayonnaise, horseradish, and anchovy paste together well. Add paprika to color. Presentation: Place whole kale or chard leaves on a flat salad plate. Place 2 tablespoons of chilled wild rice onto the center of the leaf. Place approximately 1 cup of smoked lake trout salad on top of the wild rice, and dust lightly with paprika. Arrange the tomato slices, lemon wedges, and olives around the sides. Place 2-3 tablespoons horseradish sauce on the side. Serve immediately and refrigerate leftovers.
