For the trout

  • 100g trout
  • 3 sprigs of pine
  • 5 juniper berries
  • 1L water
  • 50g salt
  • Mid olive oil

Dissolve the salt in the water to obtain a 5% brine and reserve this in the chamber. Clean the trout, removing the skin and bones, and cut it into pieces, placing in a bag with the brine for 25 minutes. When this time has passed, remove the fish from the brine and dry with absorbent paper. Now put it in the bag with the sprigs of pine and juniper berries.  Cook in the SmartVide for 1 hour at 42ºC (107,6ºF).

For the apples

  • ½ Granny Smith apple
  • 50g apple vinegar
  • 100g sugar
  • 150g water
  • 1 pinch of ascorbic acid
  • 5 sprigs of dill

Heat the water to about 60ºC (140ºF) and dissolve the sugar in it. Then add the vinegar and some sprigs of dill. Set aside and keep cold.

Peel the apples and remove the pips. Cut them into thin slices, in the form of crescents, and pack them completely with the juice for pickling, a pinch of ascorbic acid and another sprig of dill.  In this way, by osmosis, the apples absorb the juice and are pickled immediately.

For the vinaigrette

  • 80g creme fraîche
  • 100g virgin olive oil
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 20g apple vinegar
  • 6g Dijon mustard
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • A drizzle of honey

Mix the egg yolks, crème fraîche, vinegar and mustard. Then add the olive oil a little at a time until emulsified and finally season with salt and pepper.


  • Mustard greens
  • Bulb of fennel
  • Petals
  • Coriander sprouts
  • Fennel sprouts

Clean the lettuce and immerse in cold water. Do the same with the mustard greens and the fennel sliced with a mandolin slicer.
