Steamed salmon with red pepper mayonnaise

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 pounds Salmon fillets; cut into serving
; pieces
5 fluid ounce Dry white wine
2 slices Lemon with peel
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
2 mediums Red peppers; roasted
5 fluid ounce Mayonnaise
Generous shake of Cayenne pepper
5 fluid ounce Soured cream
½ teaspoon Paprike
1 tablespoon Snipped chives


Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Fill a steamer basket with the wine, 1 cup or more of water - amount depends on the steamer - and the lemon slices.

Place the salmon on the rack in the steamer. Cover and steam for 10 minutes until the fish flakes easily. Lift the fillets out of the steamer and transfer to a platter. You may choose to serve hot, allow to cool to room temperature, or refrigerate and serve cold. This dish is nice served at room temperature - the delicate flavour of the salmon is best appreciated.

Present with dollops of the red pepper mayonnaise.

To Make the Red Pepper Mayonnaise: Pur‚e the roasted pepper until smooth. Combine the pur‚ed peppers, sour cream, chives, mayonnaise, cayenne pepper and paprike, stirring until well mixed. Refrigerate until required (the sauce may be prepared 24 hours in advance).
