Savoy cabbage brook trout roulades with white asparagus ragout and wild garlic pesto

Savoy cabbage roulades

  • 8 light green savoy cabbage leaves
  • 4 brook trout fillets, approx. 120g each (alternatively you can use salmon trout fillets)
  • 250ml cream
  • 50g butter
  • lemon juice
  • 1 tsp chopped dill
  • salt and pepper

For the savoy cabbage roulades:

Blanch the savoy cabbage leaves in salted boiling water for 2 min. Immediately rinse in ice-cold water and pat dry with kitchen paper.

Remove the skin and bones from the brook trout fillets and cut out 8 pieces from the middle to fill the roulades with later. Cut the rest of the fish into small cubes and chill well. Place the well chilled fish cubes with salt, pepper and lemon juice in a blender and make a fish sauce with the cream. Refine the sauce with chopped dill and refrigerate. Next, remove the stalk from the savoy cabbage leaves and brush with the fish sauce. Place the fillet pieces in the middle of the roulade and roll up.

Place the savoy cabbage roulades in an oven dish and brush with melted butter. Season with salt and pepper and bake in the oven at 160 °C for approx. 25 min.
