Nigella has some recipes that require smoked haddock. Unfortunately, in Australia, it can be hard to come by. Would it be possible to used hot-smoked trout instead? Thank you.

Hi! For Instant Chocolate Mousse can I use whipping cream instead of double cream ? If yes what is the quantity that should be used. Thanks.
I am looking forward to making Nigella's Salted Caramel sauce recipe but we don't have double cream in NZ, I was wondering what I would need to alter in this recipe to account for this?
I have a recipe using sour cream for tartlets. I am worried there is a risk the sour cream will curdle in the oven during the cooking time. Can I substitute creme fraiche or will this affect the flavour? Thanks!
