Irish Baked SalmonThis simple but delicious preparation shows the King of Fishes off to great effect with a savory cream sauce. It relies on fine ingredients, starting with a very fresh salmon filet.


1TParsley, Flat-Leaf (chopped)
1TOnion (minced)
1lbSalmon filet
1TButter (chilled)
2THard Cider
1⁄4cHeavy Cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Butter the bottom of an oven-proof dish just large enough to hold the salmon.
  3. Scatter the onion and parsley in the bottom, lay the fish on top, and then dot it with bits of chilled butter. Add salt and white pepper now if you like.
  4. Whisk together the cider and cream, then pour over the fish.
  5. Put the dish in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the fish is done.
  6. Serve hot from the oven, or gently move the fish to a serving platter and reduce the sauce a little.


This is nice with Colcannon and a bottle of a good dry hard cider.
