A simple, delicious dish, perfect for lunch or as a first course at dinner. Leave the head on for poaching and remove before serving. When the eye turns a milky white colour the fish is ready.

2 trout, cleaned with centre bone removed
Salt and freshly ground pepper
½ cup (125 mL) chopped onion
2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped parsley
1 cup (250 mL) watercress leaves
1 tsp (5 mL) fennel seeds
2 tsp (10 mL) grated orange rind
1 cup (250 mL) approx., white wine.
¼ cup (50 mL) mayonnaise
