A side of cured salmon is super impressive looking, yet it is one of the simplest dishes to prepare. It practically does the work itself, and the homemade version is a lot more affordable than a similar pre-cured piece.
Here's one of my favorite cures. I prefer a more savory flavor, but if you like your food on the sweet side, try using equal parts of salt and sugar. Or add a tablespoon of smoked salt to the mix, for a fun twist. Once you get the hang of it, the variations are limitless! Just make sure your fish is super fresh, and you're ready to go.
