8 trout fillets
125g/4oz unsalted butter
2 tbsp capers in brine, drained and washed
2 tbsp chopped fresh chervil or dill
1-2 tbsp lime juice

1. Wash and dry the trout fillets and season lightly. Melt 25g/1oz of the

a low oven.
3. Add the remaining butter to the pan with the capers and dill and fry

4. Using a small pair of tweezers pull out any small bones that may still remain in the trout.
