A matelotte is a French river fish stew, with a creamy wine sauce. It’s out of fashion now, which is a shame. It’s really delicious. Well you need good river fish. When I was a kid, we often had neighbors that were emptying their fish pond, and we had some more often that we wished. Now it’s a rarity.

Ayu is a type of small river trout. They are farmed, at least partially. It’s rarely if ever prepared this way.

I got a few that were a bit too large for Japanese style, but perfect for my purpose.
