Step 1Soak green lentils and red lentils separately in water.
Step 2Lift or pluck the meat off the smoked trout from the bones and break into flakes. Put the bones in a saucepan, add a shallot, the bay leaf and some dried porcini mushrooms. Pour on water so that everything is covered.
Step 3Bring to the boil, remove from the heat and leave the stock to stand for about half an hour. Strain stock.
Step 4Boil the red lentils in salted water for about one minute, strain and rinse. Cook the green lentils in the same way, but for about 5 minutes. Both types of lentils should be firm to the bite afterwards.
Step 5Cut bacon into small cubes. Finely chop one shallot and the garlic clove. Sauté everything with a tablespoon of butter.
Step 6Add 250ml of smoked trout stock and soy sauce and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Mix a little tapioca flour in a cup with some icy water until smooth. Stir into the sauce and bring to the boil until thickened.
Step 7Add the lentils, bring everything to the boil once, season with salt and pepper, stir in chopped parsley if desired. Heat 125ml of fish stock, mix in 2 tablespoons of butter, season with salt and pepper.
Step 8Warm the smoked trout fillets slightly in the oven (they should not get hot) and place them on a plate. Add lentils, pour over the buttery sauce.
