Brown trout in a herb & vegetable vinaigrette
1. Peel the carrots, trim and thoroughly wash the leek and celery. Prepare the mush-rooms by removing the stalks and rubbing them with a cloth if necessary. Cut the prepared ingredients into small cubes.
2. Heat the butter in a frying pan, add the vegetables and mushrooms and fry them over a medium heat. Pour in the white wine and fish stock followed by the vinegar and bring to the boil.
3. Wash the herbs and shake them dry, pluck the leaves and finely chop them. Put the stems to one side to stuff the trout.
4. Wash the trout and dab them dry. Season the inside with some sea salt and lemon juice, then stuff the belly cavity with the parsley and dill stems.
5. Season the vegetable stock with salt and pepper and pour it into the non-perforated steamer tray. Place the fish on the tray and steam in the X BO (75°C/80% humidity) for 9–12 minutes.
6. Once the fish is cooked, carefully remove the head. Remove the fillets from the skin, place them on the plates and drizzle with the stock. Lastly, garnish with the chopped herbs and serve with some freshly grated horseradish.
