Alaskan Baked Salmon

4-pound whole salmon with head and tail, scaled, and cleaned
6 spring onions, chopped
5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup white Zinfandel wine
10 whole multicolored peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
5 whole cloves

Paper thin cucumber slices
Lemon wedges
Fresh dill sprigs

Soak fish at least 4 hours in ginger ale before preparing it. Add
enough to cover the fish. After 4 hours drain and rinse the fish.

Preheat oven to 325F. Stack 2 heavy-duty foil sheets on large baking
sheet. Place fish on foil. Sprinkle half of green onions and 2
1/2 tablespoons lemon juice inside fish. Drizzle remaining 2 1/2
tablespoons lemon juice over fish. Drizzle oil over. Pour wine
over; sprinkle with peppercorns, cayenne pepper, and cloves. Sprinkle
remaining green onions around fish. Bring up foil around fish,
sealing tightly but leaving airspace between fish and foil. Bake
fish 1 hour.

Remove from oven. Open foil and let fish cool 1 hour. Reseal foil
and refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours. Open foil. Carefully
remove skin from fish. Scrape off any grayish flesh. Transfer fish
to platter. Garnish top of fish with cucumber slices. Surround
with lemon wedges and dill sprigs.

For a quick sauce to go with the fish, whisk together 1/2 cup sour
cream, 4 tablespoons mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1
teaspoon chile powder and 2 table spoons cream style horseradish,
heat till warm.
