Chef's Note
Rainbow trout raised in salt water is now sold in Australia under the name "sea trout." There are numerous salmon farms here, so when I asked a producer in Tasmania to provide me with fish on a regular basis, he looked at me in amazement. I was a trail blazer. This happened many years ago, and today I use more than 25 tons a year in various forms. Just cooking the fish a little more or less, adding a pinch of salt, and it takes on a different flavor and texture. It has become the restaurant's signature.

But why Tasmania, you may ask...
The environment is very important. Production is concentrated in a wild environment, a place sheltered by Port Macquarie on Tasmania's western coast, known for the purity of its water, brackish water that is half fresh, half salty. When the fish come to feed, the fresh water cleans their gills naturally. Furthermore, the current is very strong, so the fish get stronger with all the exercise! There's no overcrowding. All reasons why I am so fond of this sea trout. 

You could replace the sea trout with salmon or tuna. 

Try to find a goat cheese that is not too salty - otherwise reduce the amount of soy sauce to balance it.
