Recipe


Ingredients

  • 250g whole beetroot, peeled & cooked
  • 150g Murray River Salt Flakes
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 2 tsp peppercorns
  • 1kg salmon fillet, skin on, pin boned
  • 1 continental cucumber, shaved
  • 1 green apple, shaved
  • ½ red onion, shaved
  • ½ fennel bulb, shaved
  • 3 tsp apple-cider vinegar
  • A few dill sprigs
  • Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil (optional)
  • Black bagels
  • Cream cheese

Method


  • Place cooled beetroot into a food processor bowl with salt, sugar, fennel and peppercorns and blitz until mixed.
  • Spread half the curing mixture into a glass or ceramic dish that the salmon will fit into easily.
  • Lay the salmon on top, skin side down. Cover with remaining curing mixture.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and then weigh it down with a chopping board on which you put a few tins of food. Refrigerate for up to a week but not less than 48 hours.
  • When ready to serve, remove the salmon from the cure and rinse under the tap. Pat dry with a paper towel. Slice the salmon into thin slices off the skin on an angle and place on a platter with the salad, bagels and cream cheese. Garnish with a few fennel fronds or fresh dill, or both.
  • To make the salad, toss all ingredients in a bowl and allow to marinate for a few minutes. There is no need for salt as the salmon has plenty. Also, this will be a refreshing acidity hit for the creaminess of the salmon, so no need for the extra-virgin
