Smoked salmon trout – 40-50g, cut 10x6cm pieces
  • Flake the trout into small pieces (chef’s note: when using trout lightly pan sear in butter to allow easy flaking). Add the garlic, fennel, chives, lemon juice and onion to the trout.
  • Finish with the cream cheese, cream and horseradish amount.
  • Take mixture and dived it up into four amounts. Place the piece of smoked salmon trout on a large piece of plastic. Pipe or spoon this mixture down the centre-lengthways- of your smoked salmon trout and with the help of the plastic roll the smoked salmon trout over and around the trout spread.
  • Tie the one side and continue rolling on the surface and then tightly secure so forming a long thin duo of trout cylinder.
  • Place into the fridge.

  • Plate a large size spoonful of avocado puree on the left hand side of your plate. Taking a thick spaced comb pull half of this amount across the plate lengthways.
  • Place duo roll at an angle on the plate.
  • Top this with a line of caviar and then place all the other ingredients in and around the plate, finishing off with the lemon powder sprinkle, grind of black pepper and grating of fresh horseradish.
