Cut fillet of trout into four equal portions and reconstruct it on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Set aside.

Pour water and vinegar into a casserole dish. Add shallots and boil down over low heat. Simmer slowly until the mixture has the consistency of marmalade.

Add cream to the reduction and let simmer a few minutes. Finish the sauce by adding knobs of cold butter, whisking until the sauce is smooth.
