This recipe will feed 1 person. 


  • 1 leek 
  • 2 handfuls with spinach 
  • 1 tbsp of creme fraiche

  • 5g butter 
  • Salt and pepper 


  1. Season the trout fillet on both sides with a little salt and pepper.

  3. In between cooking the rainbow trout, cut the leek in half and then chop it into cm thick pieces. 
  4. Add the leek and spinach to a separate pan, season with salt and pepper, then cook until they become softened. 
  5. Take the cooked greens off the hob and let them cool down a little. Then stir in the Creme fraiche to add a creaminess to the dish. 
  6. To serve, put the cooked greens in the middle of a warm plate. Cut the rainbow trout in half and layer it on top of the greens.
