Ingredients

  • 10-12 oz trout fillet with skin
  • 1 cup white wine (for cooking trout)
  • 5 eggs
  • 5 medium onions
  • 1/2 cup cheese (I like Mexican Four Cheese)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

Directions

Prepare the fish the night before you want to cook the salad. Cover trout with water (1/2 in above the fillet) in a pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.  Add i cup of wine, bring to a boil, and and simmer for another 5 minutes. Let it cool and stand for a night (minimum 8 hours). Next day, put fillet on the big plate, peel the skin, and mash fish with a fork. Add 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, mix well.

Boil the eggs. Drain, let cool, and peel them. Separate whites from yolks. Withes cut into small pieces, yolks mash with a fork.

Chop all onions into small pieces, fry it on low heat for 20-25 minutes or until barely golden.

For this layered salad, it is better to use a deep crystal/glass bowl. Put the ingredients into layers  in the following order
