Number of Servings: 12


    1 large onion, chopped
    2 carrots, chopped
    1 celery stalk, chopped
    8 sprigs curly parsley
    1 bunch fresh dill
    1 bay leaf
    2 whole cloves
    1 tbsp coarse sea salt
    1 tsp whole peppercorns
    1/3 cup lemon juice
    1 cup white wine (a big Chardonnay or Riesling is best)
    6 lbs salmon piece, whole (wild or farmed)


In a saucepan large enough for the fish to rest comfortably, add all ingredients except salmon.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.
Add salmon to the liquid, bring back to a boil.
If serving hot, allow about to cook 6 minutes for every pound of fish. Remove immediately from the liquid when the fish is cooked.
If chilling, boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cover tightly.
Let sit to cool completely, this may take up to 5 hours.
Drain fish and place on serving plate. Remove skin.
Cover with Saran wrap and chill completely (preferably overnight) before serving.
