    Serves 2.

    1 large leek
    2 trout, filleted and skinned
    zest of 1 lemons
    2 sprigs of marjoram
    salt, and freshly ground pepper
    freshly boiled, buttered new potatoes, to serve

    For the sauce:
    1 very large bunch of watercress, washed
    25 g butter
    75 ml double cream
    1 tsp capers, drained
    salt, and freshly ground pepper
    freshly grated nutmeg

    1. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6.

    2. Wash the leek, trim the ends off and cut in half. Cut each half, length ways. Steam until tender and then place under cold water to keep the nice bright green colour.

    3. Put half the lemon zest and marjoram in each trout and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

    4. Wrap the trout in the leek strips and place in a buttered ovenproof dish, cover with kitchen foil and bake for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through.

    5. In the meantime, make the sauce. Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the watercress.

    6. Cook for a couple of minutes until it has wilted and some of the liquid released has evaporated.

    7. Add the cream, capers, salt and freshly ground pepper and nutmeg and serve hot over the trout.
