Baked Salmon Recipe

Many of Scotlands rivers contain fresh wild salmon and there is also a high level of imports. This is a recipe which combines this readily available fish with the flavour of tarragon.

2 rashers of bacon, diced
4 Salmon Fillets
1 (Small) Chopped Onion
1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
Double Cream or Creme Fraiche to be used for serving (if desired)

Pre heat oven to 400F or Gas mark 6. Melt the butter in a pan and cook the onion until soft. Add the tarragon and bacon and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring in the lemon juice periodically.

Place a large piece of buttered kitchen foil into an ovenproof dish and place on it the 4 salmon fillets. Cover the fillets with the bacon, onion etc. mixture. Fold the foil to make a parcel and place in oven.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

This recipe should serve 4 people and the cream can be placed on top of the dish just before serving

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
