Ask your fishmonger to prepare your fish for you. If you can’t find trout, use a whole 2-3kg sustainably sourced salmon and cook for 30-40 minutes.
Any leftovers will keep covered in the fridge for up to 2 days.
In Ukraine, brined gherkins are fermented (like sauerkraut) rather than pickled in vinegar. If you can’t find them, use pickled gherkins instead.
