  1. Heat oil in a heavy 3-quart saucepan. Add onion, fennel and garlic and sauté over low heat until soft. Stir in rice. Cook a few minutes. Add wine. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until most of the wine has been absorbed.
  2. Add stock, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring, adding more as each portion is absorbed. After adding 1 1/2 cups, season with salt and pepper and fold in trout. Keep adding stock until rice is al dente but mixture is still creamy, about 17 minutes total.
  3. Fold in lemon zest and chervil. Check seasoning and serve.
