cook 30 mins
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 125 ml (4 fl oz) dry white wine
  • 50 g (2 oz) butter
  • salt and pepper
  • crushed potatoes
  • green beans
  • Brush a large baking sheet with the oil, place half the onion, orange and lemon on top and scatter over some thyme sprigs. Place a salmon fillet, skin side down, on top of the fruit, onion and thyme. Put the remaining fruit, onion and thyme on the fish and season well, then place the remaining salmon fillet on top. Tie some kitchen string around the fish to secure.
