Cut the skinned fillets of pike into fairly thick, large oval-shaped slices; remove the bones carefully and inset the pieces of fish with slices of truffle. Place in a well buttered tray, moisten with a little white wine and Fish Stock and poach in the oven, basting from time to time. Glaze the fillets at the last moment.

Arrange in a circle on a round dish with a Régence garnish for fish in the centre and surround with small trussed crayfish which have been cooked in a Court-bouillon.
