    Your choice of fresh herbs


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and place the rack a the centre of it.
  2. Lay the salmon onto a piece of aluminum foil, wide enough to wrap it entirely afterwards. Season well then lay out the lime slices and butter onto the flesh. Wrap the foil shut, into a giant cooking packet (papillote).
  3. Cook for 25 to 30 minutes or until the flesh is well done. Rule of thumb is usually to cook 15 minutes per pound of salmon. Then set aside the fish.
  4. Combine all the salad ingredients in a large bowl, and set aside.
  5. Serve the salmon at the centre of the table, and pull it apart with a fork. Garnish each bagel with cream cheese and top with the salmon and beet salad.

Tips & tricks
