  1. Cut the belly section of the fillet, keeping the cylindrical shape. Season with the salt and cayenne pepper. Stuff with parsley, dill, chives and spring onions.

Remove saucepan from stove and allow to cool. Refrigerate overnight. Remove from fridge, then slice into 2cm slices (while still wrapped in cling wrap). Remove cling wrap.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together lemon juice and olive oil. In a separate bowl, mix together cucumber, half of the chopped chives and two tablespoons of lemon oil mix. Use for serving.
  4. Combine crabmeat with the roe, chilli and two tablespoons of the lemon oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve cucumber salad on the plate, top with the roe and crab mixture then place the trout on the top. Pour over any remaining lemon oil.
