For the marinade, finely slice the onion and gently fry with the spices and herbs. Add the trout fillets and the rest of the ingredients. Boil for two minutes and remove from the heat so that the trout fillets are only just cooked. Remove the fish and strain the cooking liquid.

For the leek mouse, cook the sliced leek in the salted water until the leek is soft and the water has practically evaporated. Blend. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend together. Check for seasoning and place the mixture into molds. Cook in a double saucepan at 250 degrees F for 20 minutes.

For the salad, finely slice the onions, gently fry until transparent and season. Cook the green beans but drain before they become soft. Then coarsely slice the lettuce and dress with the olive oil.

To serve, place a little onion on each plate and top with the slightly warm green beans followed by the lettuce. The leek mousse is served to one side. Top with the trout and dress with the marinade sauce previously reduced with virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with the fried ham.
