Trout! Wher'd you get trout. I want trout too. In any case, I would serve the fish piping hot, with the sauce hot as well. The salad should be ice cold. That way, you get both the hot and cold in your mouth at the same time. The contrast of crisp, cold tomatoes, with the cold salad will excite half of your sensations while the hot and silky fish, along with the hot sauce will excite the other half. And the flavors should compliment each other perfectly.
With this dish, it is important to experience the contrasts of hot and cold, savory and salty, with the bite of the tomato mingling with the refeshin cucumber. That is what will make it a meal to remember.
Think of your last hot-fudge-sunday, with the rich and hot dark chocolate contrasting the smooth and sweet vanilla ice cream. Only, I think I'd prefer your salad. Sounds yummy.
