Recipe Courtesy Chef Bryan Woolley


  • 2 large trout, cleaned and filleted (4 fillets)
  • 6 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp dried dill
  • 1 large lemon, sliced
  • 2 large sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 small bunch of fresh parsley
  • 3 large Klondike potatoes, can use Russets if needed
  • 1 large onion, diced

In a large pan that will hold the trout fillets combine the vegetable stock, dried dill, lemon slices, fresh thyme sprigs and parsley, Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Once the liquid cools down to a simmer, gently lower the fillets into the poaching liquid and keep the liquid to a simmer only. Poach for about 10 minutes or until fully cooked.
  2. To prepare the hash-browns, shred the potatoes and throughly rinse. Heat a large sauté pan on the stove and add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Add the onion and sauté until fragrant. Add the prepared hash browns and sauté until the potatoes are tender and cooked through. Salt and pepper to taste.
