Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas 6.
  • Place the salmon in a shallow, ovenproof dish. Top each salmon steak with the sliced onion and carrots then season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Pour over the fish stock and add the bay leaf, chopped parsley and bring to the boil.
  • Remove from the heat, cover with greaseproof paper then place in the oven for eight to ten minutes.
  • While the salmon is poaching make the mousseline sauce. Place the egg yolks, mustard and white wine vinegar in a blender and process until well-mixed.

  • Once the salmon has cooked remove the steaks from the stock. Remove the centre bone from each salmon steak and peel off the skin.
  • Garnish each steak with the cooked onion, carrot, sliced cucmber, and a little of the fish stock. Serve at once with the mousseline sauce on the side.

Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
