How to Make It
  1. Blanch the lettuce leaves in boiling water for 20–30 seconds. Rinse under running cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Trim out the thick center veins so it is possible to lay the leaves flat. Overlap two leaves together, arrange a trout fillet on each, and season.
  2. Heat the oil in a small saucepan, add the scallions and mushrooms, and fry over brisk heat for 3–4 minutes until cooked. Add the tarragon and lemon juice, then cool.
  3. Divide the mushroom mixture over each trout fillet. Fold the lettuce over to encase.
  4. Lift the trout onto a large bamboo steamer. Do not allow the parcels to touch. Steam for 5–6 minutes, until the fish flakes to the touch.
  5. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt, capers, parsley, and shallot together and season lightly. Lift the fish parcels on to a large serving dish and serve the dressing separately.
