Salmon x2 brought defrosted slices [for the amount of people cooking for, in this I’m doing it for 2 people, so double up depending on if you need more]
Artichoke hearts in oil x1 can
Pick a herb~ basil, oregano, thyme, marjoram, etc. handful of one of these.
Olives, one can
Seasoning-pepper and salt
Lemon juice
Sliced, diced and chopped vegetables of your choice- aubergine, coloured peppers etc.
Get a tray that you’ll be cooking these in, add the fish a good length apart [so the other things can cook around them].
Open the cans of the list above. Chop the herb of your choice and add this to a small bowl with the juice of one lemon and the seasoning, mix with a fork and add this over the fish. Place the veg around the salmon slices, and add the artichoke hearts as well-this comes in it’s own oil and will be sufficient to be oily for the whole dish, plus the fish contains oils too. Add the drained olives as well.
Cook on an average temp- around 180 degrees C, for about 30mins-1 hour check occasionally to see when the fish has coloured a light golden brown.

Cucumber Milk
4 ounces oil of sweet almonds
10 ounces juice of fresh cucumbers
3 ounces essence of cucumbers
1/4 ounce white Castile soap, powdered
2/3 drachm tincture of benzoin
The juice of the cucumbers is made by boiling the slices in a very little
water, strain through a fine cloth. Make the essnece by mixing 1 1/2 ounces
of the juice with 1 1/2 ounces alcohol (in this case, use strong vodka).
Dissolve the soap in the essence, add the juice, shake well until thoroughly
mixed; pour into a bowl and add the oil and the tincture, beating well until
you have a milky liquid. Bottle. (I would keep this refrigerated)
She states that this lotion is a specific for sensitive skins, redness,
sunburn and roughness.

For Summer Rash (prickly heat rash)
7 ounces elder-flower water
1 ounce glycerine
1/2 drachm borax
Apply night and morning.

Vinaigre des Quatre Voleurs
1 ounce lavender flowers
3/4 ounce each of: rosemary, thyme, rue, sage, wormwood, mint
1 drachm each of: calamus, nutmegs, cloves, cinnamon
1 drachm camphor (not mothballs)
2 ounces alcohol
1 quart strong wine vinegar
Dissolve the camphor in the alcohol, then add the herbs, spices and vinegar;
let stand 10 days, strain.

Aromatic Toilet Vinegar
1 pint spirits of wine (substitute strong vodka)
1/2 pint strong vinegar
1 1/2 ounces gum benzoin
1/2 ounce balsam of Peru
1/2 drachm oil of neroli (orange flower)
1/2 drachm oil of mace
Steep 1 week, then filter.

These vinegars were used as refreshing toners, by adding a few drops to a
glass of water to rinse the face, or by saturating a cotton wad and
inserting in a "vinaigrette", a small glass flacon carried and smelled when
one was feeling faint or to relieve a headache.
