Polenta (cornmeal) is rather strange looking stuff and the instant kind, when boiled up, looks a bit like mashed potato. But when set into a square and cut in to ‘chips’ it starts to turn in to something rather special. Trout would also work well for this very good looking dish.
Equipment and preparation: you will need a 20cm/8in square tin.
