This recipe is very appropriate for the Manx seaside village of Laxey (Manx: Laksaa) combining as it does Salmon and Queenies. The name Laksaa is derived from Old Norse Laxa meaning Salmon River. ‘Queenie’ is the name given by Manx people to the Queen Scallop (Manx: Roagan).
Ingredients for two:
Place the salmon into separate loose foil parcels having put a splash of lemon and wine (using half of one glass), then one tablespoon spoon of butter and the garlic on each. With the oven at a temperature of 180 degrees C place the salmon to bake for ten minutes. Using a large frying pan very lightly fry the chopped onions and bacon. Then with the heat increased add the queenies stirring the mixture together for a minute. Put in the remainder of the wine simmering to reduce just a little. Take from the heat and add and stir in the cream so thickening the sauce. Add seasoning as desired.
Take the salmon from the oven and parcels, putting then into a shallow over dish with any of the remaining juices going into the sauce. Pour the queenie, onion and bacon sauce over the salmon. Cover with the grated cheese and grill until golden. Accompanied by a slice of lemon and seasonal Manx vegetables, salad and new potatoes.
