    I bought a fish kettle at a vide-grenier, it has sat on top of the kitchen unit for about a year.

    We had invited friends for lunch today and I had a lovely Trout of about 3lb that I caught. We went to the supermarket and they were fresh out of the herbs I needed to stuff the fish.

    I ended up slicing up a Fennel bulb and a couple of Oranges, which I stuffed into the cavity and arranged on top, and after seasoning with salt and black pepper steamed the fish with a couple of glasses of vin blanc and water for 40 minutes. It was superb!!!!!

    It would also work with salmon or Bass.

    Sounds delish.  :good:

    I love it when you go ‘off piste’ when cooking and it turns out to be something really tasty and delicious.

     

    Happy improvising!

    There tend to be plenty for sale at the vides. There is a big one at Callac tomorrow morning opposite the station. I am sure you will find one there.

    Sounds delicious CAWAS. I often go off-piste with cooking, sometimes it tastes wonderful, other times I think I probably won’t do it like that again! Lovely when you get it right though isn’t it?

    So very sorry, but don’t like fish (apart from cod in batter from chippy), so I’m afraid I can’t get excited about this. I wouldn’t eat it  :negative:

    UPDATE

    Sorry, the vide at Callac is not tomorrow, it is on Thursday, but the road was closed today.

     

    You can make a very good substitute Jellied Eels with dogfish, or Rousette as it is in France.

    I was given one years ago and I sometimes poach a whole salmon in it. Trouble is it needs 2 rings and takes up most of the hob!
