We discovered our trout tartare while staying overnight in France near the Lac d’Aiguebelette. In an excellent local restaurant there was “lake fish tartare” on the menu and it was delicious! We thought it would work with our trout at “Le Vieux Mouline” and so we asked our chef to make us a version of this dish when we got home... It’s nice to be able to try a fish tartare that is not the Red Tuna Tartare that you see everywhere... And, what is more, it uses a really local product ! (Christiane Boereboom)
