     1/2 c  Green onion tops or: Chives       1/2 c  Spinach- uncooked
     1/2 c  Green pepper                        2 tb Lemon juice
     1/4 c  Parsley                             1 c  Mayonnaise
  
   Spread the oil in a frypan or baking dish. Place the salmon steaks next to
   one another, but not overlapping. Add the lemon juice and peel,
   peppercorns, salt, onion and just enough hot water to cover the fish. Cover
   and poach on top of the stove (if using frypan) over low heat, for 10-12
   minutes or in 325F oven (in baking dish) for the same length of time or
   until the salmon flakes. Allow the fish to cool in the liquid. Drain well
   and remove the skin. Arrange on platter, then cover completely with the
   following sauce. Serve with a cucumber salad.
   
   Sauce Verte: Chop the vegetables coarsely and put in blender with lemon
   juice. Cover and blend until it turns iinto a sort of mush with small bits
   of this and that in it. Add the mayonnaise and blend. If you don't have a
   blender, chop the ingredients very finely and blend them into the
   mayonnaise with the lemon juice, crushing them as much as possible to give
   color to the sauce.
   
   From the author, “Use salmon steaks for this colourful and tasty dish. It
   is then easy to make it for 2 or 10.”
