  1. Place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with hot water. Bring water just to a boil over medium heat; set aside and let stand 10 minutes. Run under cold water until eggs are just cool enough to handle. Peel warm eggs and slice.
  2. While eggs cook, finely chop trout and dill together. Transfer trout mixture to a small bowl with crème fraîche and mustard. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Spread toast with trout. Top with radishes, egg and dill fronds. Serve with salad.
