  1. Looks fantastic and I’m sure it tastes great … yet I’d try to poach the salmon instead of baking it in the oven. The poaching liquid can add a ton of flavor to the fish if using a good quality wine, a little bit of cream and a load of fresh herbs. And maybe add a little bit of brown sugar to the boiling water for lemon and raisins …?
