Recipe components

Chocolate cups with smoked trout


Soak the gelatine sheet in cold water. Heat the dry sherry and dissolve the gelatine in it. Meanwhile whip the double cream. Cut the trout, sherry and fish fumet into it and blend into the whipped cream. Empty out onto a sheet and allow to stiffen.
Blend the cold pectin well into the Pedro Ximénez and heat to 80°C stirring. Allow to cool down to 30°C and then pour thinly over the fish mousse.
Transfer the fish mousse into the cups.
