    Fisch blau

    Context/ examples

    Does anyone know how to translate a menu with fish specialities when the descriptions use the term "blau", for example Zander blau or Kabeljau blau. I'm afraid I'm not up on the cooking methods...

    Duden-Oxford gives "blue trout" for "Forelle blau". Might be worth Googling it to check.

    SuggestionFisch blau [cook.]
    Context/ examples

    Thanks for your reply, but I meant the cooking method "blau", not the type of fish... sorry if I didn't explain that clearly!

    In the meantime I have found out that it is when the fish is "boiled in salt and vinegar"... but I am wondering whether poached is the better translation for this...

    Any comments (anyone)?

    Aunty Em, I've never seen a BLUE trout and I did understand (I live in Germany and occasionally (very) eat Forelle blau, preferring Art der Müllerin), and Duden-Oxford's "blue trout" has the prefix "Kochk.": so Duden-Oxford thinks that's what you're looking for. Pace Baldrick. Pace world.

    "Poached trout" for me would be one that a poacher has caught.

    Here's a recipe for "blue trout" (if a Tuvalu - wherever that is - website can be trusted):

    Blue Trout
    Trout 1 kilo or 4 portions
    Vinegar 3 spoonfuls
    White Wine 2 glasses
    Carrots 1
    Parsley a sprig
    Bay Leaves 1 leaf
    Peppercorns a few

    Here's another recpie from the German Embassy, Washington D.C.

    Germany Online Home: Culture & Life: Life: Recipes: Recipe Archive
    Forelle Blau
    Blue Trout

    This recipe gets its name from the blue color the trout takes on when cooked in vinegar.

    4 trout, gutted and cleaned
    2 quarts water
    1 cup dry white wine
    1/3 cup best quality vinegar
    1 carrot
    1 onion
    1 leek
    1 bay leaf
    black peppercorns

    Salt to taste
    Butter 30 gr
    Lemons 1

    But that said, maybe for other types of fish one just says "poached".
