This was really good. I used Newcastle to poach the salmon, next time I may try a different beer. Mayo was tasty.

My partner and I really liked the moistness of the salmon; but despite the aromatic additions to the poaching liquid, it was quite bland. I love the delicate, but rich taste of salmon and it really did shine through. Still, all in all, a nice recipe!
