If you mange to catch a salmon this is a nice way of preparing it that doesn't require cooking. Fillet the fish making sure you remove the ribs and pin bones.
First prepare your mix, a half cup of salt, a quarter cup of brown sugar and a quarter cup of white sugar. Tradition has it that you add fresh dill also but I actually prefer fresh fennel, so a few sprigs from the garden and we are ready to proceed.
Place your salmon skin side down on a layer of your mix then pour the rest over the fish making sure its well covered.
Place in the fridge for 12 hours, the thicker the fillet the longer you may need to leave it for.
12 hours later you can see how much moisture had been drawn out of the fish.
Rinse it in cold water and pat dry quickly to stop it reabsorbing any moisture
It's ready to go, cut thin slivers off the meat and eat as is or on wheaten bread with a home made mustard sauce.. delicious.
Though salmon is traditional it also works well with trout or char.
