This is a simple yet effective way to cook trout. Poaching the fish from cold ensures a tender result, while the aromatics will impart flavour without overshadowing the fish’s sweetness. Served with a light yoghurt, mustard-accented sauce, it makes for an elegant yet unfussy main course.

1
Place the trout fillets together with the carrot, onion and celery in a large, high-edged pan. Cover with cold water, place over a low heat and bring to a simmer. Carry on cooking the fish until just cooked through, about 10 minutes
2
Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix the yoghurt with the mustard, salt and pepper
3
Drain the trout fillets and transfer them to a warm serving platter. Drizzle them with olive oil and season to taste. Arrange the lemon quarters around the fish
4
Serve right away, alongside the yoghurt sauce
