Makes 14 portions (12 jury members, 1 for photographing and 1 extra)


Trollfjord Made with Norwegian Fjord Trout


Fillet 2 whole trout and cut away parts of the belly. 

Cut carefully in from the belly and remove the upper layer (this removes the bones effectively)


The fillets should be completely flat, as schnitzels.

Make a brine of 3 dl salt and 3 l water; soak the fillets for about 15 minutes.


Sauté 20 raw scampi (4-5 per fillet of trout) with ground coriander.


Cool down and trim the edges neatly.


Blanch the Japanese radish and Swiss chard.


Place the Swiss chard and Japanese radish onto cling film and brush with lemon zest, lemon timian, and estragon.


Grind a sprinkling of pepper over.


Place the trout and roll of scampi onto the Swiss chard mixture.

Roll the trout around the roll of scampi with the Swiss chard on the outside.


Wrap the cling film together and steam the package for 14 minutes at roughly 70 degrees Celsius.


Once steamed, each roll is then sliced into 4 pieces (enough for 16 persons -

two extra, just in case there should be a culinary mishap).


Place a dab of caviar and a poached quail's egg on top of each piece.


Served with an array of vegetables, this dish impresses the gastronomic elite.
