½ cup white wine

juice of one lemon

salt and Pepper

1 English cucumber, thinly sliced

Method

Start with fish butterflied, head and tail on but centre bone removed. Make wrapping for the fish using 2 large pieces of foil together. Stuff salmon with stuffing of choice and place fish on foil, stuffing side down. Combine wine and lemon juice, pour over back of fish. Lightly salt and pepper. Wrap foil loosely around fish leaving room for steam to circulate. Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting a small knife into the flesh to see if it flakes. Peel skin off while fish is still lightly warm. Cool to room temperature and wrap with plastic wrap, then chill for 4 to 5 hours. Remove from refrigerator and place salmon on cedar plank or platter. Place thinly sliced cucumber to cover fish completely with overlapping pieces to resemble scales.
