Video: How To Cook Salmon

In the second video of the series, our chef Peter Bayless, winner of BBC Masterchef 2006, explains how to cook delicious salmon en papillote.

Salmon often isn't in the spotlight at Christmas time but it is a popular alternative to Turkey. The fillet of salmon is cooked on a bed of fennel, shallot, tomatoes, garnish and baked in a folded parcel - an impressive dish for entertaining this season as the opening of the package releases all the wonderful aromas which guests will love.

Follow Peter's step-by-step guide to cook salmon.

You will need the following:

Piece of centre fillet salmon -  large enough for two good steaks
Butter
White vermouth
Fennel bulb
