Method

Cut a small pike or 2 smaller ones depending on size, into sections and poach them in a Champagne Court-bouillon, strongly flavoured with herbs and vegetables. Strain the Court-bouillon and reduce it to prepare a sauce in accordance with the method for Matelote à la Marinière.

Place the pike on a dish, coat with the sauce and garnish it with poached soft roes; mushrooms; sliced truffle and heart-shaped Croûtons of bread fried in clarified butter.
