1/4 cup





1 tbsp

whole salmon, cleaned, gutted and scaled

spring onions, roughly chopped

lemon, thinly sliced

black peppercorns

sprigs fresh dill oil, to brush

dry white wine

bay leaves



egg yolks

lemon juice or vinegar

Method :
  1. Preheat the oven to moderate 180C (350F/ Gas 4).
  2. Gently rinse the salmon well under cold running water and pat dry inside and out with paper towels.
  3. Stuff the salmon cavity with the spring onion, lemon, peppercorns and dill, spreading each stuffing evenly inside the cavity.
  4. Brush a large, double-layered piece of foil with oil and lay the salmon on the foil.
  5. Sprinkle with the white wine and arrange the bay leaves over the top.
  6. Fold the foil over and wrap the salmon tightly, ensuring that it is totally covered.
  7. Place the salmon in a shallow baking fish in the oven and cook for 30 minutes.
  8. Turn the oven off and leave the salmon in the oven for 45 minutes with the door close.
  9. Undo the foil and carefully remove the skin on the top side of the salmon.
  10. Carefully flip the salmon onto the serving plate and peel away the skin frmo the other side.
  11. Pull out the fins and any visible bones.
  12. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  13. To make the hollandaise, melt the butter in a saucepan, skim any froth from the surface of the butter and allow to cool to room temperature.
  14. Mix the yolks with 2 tbsp water and whisk for 30 seconds, or until the mixture is pale and foamy.
  15. Place in a small saucepan over very low heat and whisk for about 2-3 minutes, or until the egg mixture is thick and the whisk leaves a trail - do not let the pan get too hot or the yolks will scramble.
  16. Remove from the heat.
  17. Add the cooled butter, a little at a time, whisking well after each addition.
  18. Do not use the milky butter whey left at the bottom of the pan.
