By PutoPinoy on Monday, July 23, 2007 At Monday, July 23, 2007


1 salmon cleaned with head, tail and skin on. Roll up a lot of foil and place into belly for support. Stand fish up (like it were swimming) on sheet pan. Cover fish with salad oil and season with salt and pepper. To seal completely wrap fish with foil. To help hold fish up while baking use coffee mugs full of water. Line pan with diced onions and celery.

Fill pan with water or white wine. Bake at 275 degrees for 3-4 hours until done, depending on size of fish. Remove from oven. Cool overnight or until cold enough to decorate. Peel off skin on sides leave head, tail as is. Remove fins. Carefully trim off grey fat to expose pink meat. Coat with unflavored gelatin and cool.

Repeat 3-4 coats and then decorate; with lemons, prawns, shrimp, crab legs and tomatoes. Glaze with gelatin after to hold pieces on . This is exceptional as a center piece for dinner party, and it tastes great too.
