For a quick snack, wrap slices of smoked salmon around small bunches of watercress or rocket. Top with a dollop of crème fraîche and a sprinkling of milled pepper.
Cover a baking tray with coarse rock salt. Lightly oil the skin of a whole, cleaned fish and place on the salt bed. Cover entirely with more rock salt. Bake in a preheated 200°C oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Cool slightly, crack open the salt crust, and serve.
Place fish fillets on a large sheet of baking paper. Top with thinly sliced onions and lemon. Scatter with sliced garlic and sprigs of dill. Season and douse with olive oil and a splash of white wine. Wrap securely and bake in a preheated 200°C oven for 10 minutes or until cooked through.
