Bring a medium saucepan of generously salted water to the boil. Thinly slice the radishes. Peel the potato then cut into 2cm chunks. Pick the dill leaves. Peel the orange, and remove the white pith. Working over a bowl and using a small knife, carefully cut along both sides of each orange segment, letting the orange pieces fall into the bowl. Discard the membrane. TIP: You can just peel the orange and thinly slice into half-moons if you prefer!
Add the potato to the saucepan of boiling water and cook for 10-12 minutes or until soft when pierced with a knife. Drain, then set aside to cool slightly.
While the potato is cooking, heat a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the pecans and toast, tossing, for 2-3 minutes, or until fragrant. Transfer to a small bowl. Allow the pan to cool slightly, then return to a medium heat. Add the brown sugar, water and a pinch of salt and cook until dissolved and bubbling. Return the pecans to the pan and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until the caramel has thickened. Transfer to a sheet of baking paper, spread in a single layer and set aside to cool.
Wash out the pan and return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Pat the rainbow trout fillets dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Once hot, add the trout to the pan, skin-side down, and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side (depending on thickness), or until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate to rest. Once the trout is cool enough to handle, gently flake into pieces using a fork. TIP: Peel off the skin first, if you prefer!
While the trout is resting, place the cooled potato, rocket leaves, radish, orange and 1/2 the dill leaves in a large bowl. Add the mustard cider dressing and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Gently toss to coat
Divide the orange salad between plates and top with the flaked trout. Pull off chunks of the goat cheese and sprinkle over the salad. Top with the candied pecans and remaining dill.
