Directions

Step 1

Filet, scale and clean the fish (Leave skin on)

Step 2

Mix all the cure ingredients and line a non reactive

pan with some of the mixture.

Step 3

Place the prepared filets skin side down on the

mixture, being careful not to overlap them.

Step 4

Top with more cure mixture and continue until all the

filets are covered.

Step 5

Allow to cure for 18-20 hours in the fridge.

Step 6

Wipe off cure when the fish has the desired texture and

flavour. For smaller fish you would adjust the time in the

cure. For a thin fillet of fluke or sole 4-6 hours would be

fine.

Step 7

To serve, wash off the cure and discard. Thinly slice the fish

and serve with a light salad of mixed greens, shaved raw

fennel, citrus segments, coriander leaves and good quality

olive oil.
