But here are the ingredients, and method, you need to make this lovely steamed trout dish, so do have your shopping list ready!
1 large leek
1 fennel bulb
1 large carrot or 8 baby carrots
4 x 150g brown trout fillets, skin-on
200ml dry white wine
1 bunch fresh dill, roughly torn
1 star anise
10 coriander seeds
4 lemon slices and finely grated zest to serve
1.Trim the vegetables, then cut into 2mm thick slices, cutting the onion and leek straight down (strip a few layers off the leek first), the carrot(s) at an angle and the fennel length-ways.
2.Lay the vegetables in a shallow casserole or wide frying pan. Top with the fish fillets, skin-side up, leaving space between each fillet.
3.Pour in the wine, then season with lots of sea salt, the dill and the spices. Pour in 250ml water and put a lid of baking paper, cut to size, on top.
4.Put the pan over a medium heat and bring to the boil, then remove from the heat immediately and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
5.Divide the vegetables among 4 plates, top with the trout fillets, skin-side down, then spoon over some of the juices and dill sprigs from the pan. Add a slice of lemon and some lemon zest to each plate, then serve with homemade salad cream.
If you can’t get hold of brown trout, use rainbow trout instead.
The broth is great, so if you have any left over, keep it for soups or fish pies. When cool, keep it in a sterilised container for up to a week in the fridge, or freeze for 3 months.
A dry, light Italian white is spot on for this, both in and with the trout, so chill a gavi.
