Bake Whole Salmon Recipe

I got this from BBC recipe and had a go with it on boxing day, the fish was lovely and it tasted so good! It is so easy to prepare and the ingredients are easy to find as well, so even if you are not an expert cook, like me, you too can have a go with it.

• 1 whole salmon, 3-4kg/6.5-10lb in weight, gutted and cleaned
• 4 sprigs fresh parsley
• ½ lemon, sliced
• 2 bay leaves
• 150ml/5fl oz dry white wine
• 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Preparation method
1. Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5.
2. Take 2 large sheets of foil and place on top of each other in a roasting tin. Spread the oil on the foil and place the salmon on top.
3. Put the parsley, lemon slices and bay leaves into the body cavity. Fold the edges of the foil together but just before sealing, pour in the wine.
4. Bake the fish for 50-60 minutes.
5. Serve hot or cold. If you want to serve it cold, allow the fish to cool in the parcel and then gently peel off the skin and garnish with thinly sliced cucumber and watercress.

I have here some photos of the said Salmon, note that I am only just starting to cook and not an expert so please bear with me. The skin of the fish came off when it was cooked but it did taste and smells so good.
