Trout Tartare

Trout tartare

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)

If you can get hold of a shoulder of wild boar this is an easy recipe to prepare, and you can add mushrooms, berries or fruit if you wish.

“I have more and more guests who are gluten-intolerant, and I make this for them for breakfast. Neither buckwheat flour nor ground almonds contain gluten, and they do make the mixture more crumbly, so it is best served in a shallow dish. This is a delicious alternative to diet bread!” (Sylviane Tatin)
