A recipe for making salmon candace – Put a large cut of salmon on the drainer in a fish-kettle and cover it with a small slice of raw ham. Add two cupfuls of Rhine wine, a quart of stock, and a bunch of parsley. Cover with buttered paper, simmer for an hour, drain, and remove the skin. Strain the liquid, thicken with flour cooked brown in butter, add a tablespoonful of butter, cayenne, and lemon-juice to season. Bring to the boil, pour over the fish, and serve.
