German term or phrase: Zander-Lachsragout
On a restaurant menu. I thought Zander and Lachs were two different species of fish, so what's Zander-Lachs? Can someone explain?

pike-perch and salmon ragout


Explanation:
Zander and Salmon are definitely two different kinds of fish in this ragout. There is a bit of a question about whether Zander is an English word, its certainly not one anyone has heard of. The official translation is Pike-perch as this is, species-wise, what it is closest too. The answer depends on whether it is a menu (go for the fish types people have heard of) or a gastronomical text (go for Zander).
