  • Summary

    A magnificent salmon can be poached, glazed, and prepared for the table in a couple of hours, then kept in the refrigerator overnight. If the salmon is too long to fit in your fish poacher, you may cut off the head and tail, although the presentation is more beautiful with the entire fish intact. A six-pound salmon will feed about eight people.

    Ingredients

    • 1 whole salmon, (8-pound), scaled, gutted, and cleaned (gills removed)
    • Court-Bouillon
    • 6 large egg whites
    • 2 tablespoons plus 3/4 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
    • Fennel fronds, for garnish
    • 1 lemon, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds, for garnish
    • 1 orange, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds, for garnish
    • 2 or 3 kumquats, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds, for garnish (optional)
