Preparation

If necessary, remove the bones from the trout fillets. Place the fillets on a baking tray. Douse fillets with olive oil, lemon juice, sugar, coarse salt, black pepper and dill. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours.***

Grate the potatoes.

In a small round frying pan, pre-heated and well oiled, cook the potatoes to make a thin pancake, nicely golden on both sides. Season. Keep hot. Repeat 8 times.

In a food processor, mix the parsley with the olive oil and lemon juice. Season lightly.

Assemble dish by placing a warm pancake on each plate. Slice the trout fillets finely and arrange on the pancakes. Add the Canadian Le Mi-Carême cheese. Top with a second pancake. Drizzle with parsley oil. Garnish with diced tomatoes and dill.

Tips

* It's very important not to wash the potatoes for this recipe. Washing them gets rid of the starch, which is needed to keep the pancake from falling apart.

*** The trout fillets can be marinated for longer if you wish. They will be even tastier.
