my salmon spectacular ('s not that spectacular)

i first cooked this years ago . for some reason , i never bothered to write down the list of ingredients or take a photo of it every time i made it . this time , i made it a point to do both . i admit it's far from a budget recipe , but hey...salmon has the highest content of omega 3 amongst the fishes...and students need brains right ? (not that i'm saying you guys don't have any)

what you need leh ? (for 3 people)

3 salmon fillets

350 ml mayonnaise
240 ml dijon mustard
juice of 1 lemon
1 cup white wine (i only use brown brother's moscato)
a bunch of fresh dil
a bunch of fresh lemon thyme
1 brown onion , sliced (i usually turn them into onion rings)
handful of chopped coriander

240 g of shrimp

how to do leh ?

1 . set the salmon fillets aside for now
2 . combine the other ingredients , except the shrimp , into a bowl to make a marinade .
3 . coat the salmon fillets with the marinade and set aside for a couple of hours
4 . preheat the oven to 220 degrees celsius
5 . chuck the marinated fillets into the oven . i believe the rule is 5 minutes per inch...but 15-20 minutes is a safe bet .
6 . whilst waiting , cook shrimps in the leftover of the marinade for additional sauce . do note that 240 g of shrimp is too very generous .
