  • 03
  • Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat until shimmering. Drain capers and pat dry with absorbent paper, dust with flour, shaking off any excess, then fry for 5 minutes or until golden. Drain on absorbent paper.

To serve, spoon remoulade onto plates, top with trout, scatter over capers, eggwhite and yolk and salmon roe, drizzle with vinaigrette and serve immediately.
Note Brenton Allan uses Yarra Valley Salmon Roe available from gourmet food stores and delicatessens.

"I'm usually not a fan of ocean trout but Brenton Allan's pan-fried version with cabbage remoulade at Stamps has made a convert of me. Would you please ask the chef to share his secrets?"
