Salmon Fillet with Lime and White Wine
This is the meal Colin’s preparing toward the end of Human Remains, when he is sadly very rudely interrupted. It’s his favorite recipe, and he is particularly disappointed to have to leave it behind.
2 salmon fillets
Zest and juice of a lime, plus a slice of lime for garnish
Salt and pepper
Make a parcel out of tinfoil, greasing lightly with a few drops of olive oil, and put the salmon inside. Add the zest and juice of the lime a splash of white wine, and salt and pepper to taste. Seal the parcel well, leaving some space for steam to circulate within it.
Refrigerate for 1 or 2 hours to allow the flavors to marinate.
Steam for 4 to 5 minutes or bake for 10 to 15 minutes in a preheated oven (200°C/390°F). Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and a slice of lime.
Serve with a mixture of white and wild rice and a side of steamed green vegetables – delicious!
