This is one of the easiest salmon dishes available but the result is really good. A whole salmon side that is lightly seasoned with salt and lemon and then covered with cheese and cream is all you need to do to and then just let the oven take care of the rest.

This is a base recipe that I have made lots of times. It can be modified in lots of ways, but usually I just replace some of the regular cheese with parmesan/grana padano. You can also mix a handful of fresh dill or parsley in the cream so the cheese sauce absorbs the taste when it cooks in the oven.

The finished gratin can be left for a few minutes before serving. It stays very well in the fridge for a day and can also be prepared up to the point where you just have to put it in the oven.
