This recipe is from Le Ménagier de Paris, a 14th century French manuscript.
Saumon frais soit baconné, et gardez l'eschine pour rostir; puis despeciez par dales cuites en eaue, et du vin et du sel au cuire; mengié au poivre jaunet ou à la cameline et en pasté, qui veult, pouldré d'espices; et se le saumon est salé, soit mengié au vin et à la ciboule par rouelles.
Translation: (by Janet Hinson)
Fresh Salmon should be smoked, and leave the backbone in for roasting; then cut it into slices boiled in water, with wine and salt during cooking; eat with yellow pepper or with cameline sauce and in pastry, whatever you like, sprinkled with spices; and if the salmon is salted, let it be eaten with wine and sliced scallions.
This recipe lends itself to multiple interpretations with the mentioning of .
My First Interpretation (Appetizer of Smoked Salmon):
Place smoke salmon in a seal-able plastic bag with wine and scallions. Place in refrigerator over night. Arrange salmon pieces on platter.
Make sure salmon filet is free from skin or bones. Combine wine and spice mixture in medium sized bowl to form a marinade. Place salmon filets in marinade ensuring each piece is coated with the marinade. Then cover bowl with salmon filets and marinade with plastic wrap, then place in refrigerator for an hour. Remove Salmon filets from bowl and then place in baking dish and bake in a preheated oven at 375°F 35- 45 minutes. Serve with Cameline Sauce
