Don't be scared to make it - its really simple and incredibly economical to feed a crowd and have provided proportions rather than specific quantities which all depend on the weight of your salmon.

This typical dish is a sliver of Norway to share with the rest of the world.

  • Serves 6
  • Cooking Time 0 mins
  • Preparation Time 3-4 Days mins


  • Salmon Fillet, Skin Left On
  • 60g of Salt & 60g of Sugar Per Kilo of Salmon
  • Spirit Flavouring for Example Brandy, Vodka or Pernod
  • Chopped Fresh Dill
  • Mustard Seeds
  • Ground Black Pepper


1. Remove any bones from the fillet. Wipe clean with kitchen paper but, do not remove the skin.

2. Place the salmon, skin side down, in a non-metallic dish. The fish should lie flat.

3. Rub the dry ingredients into the salmon, working it into any crevice. Pour a 'slug' of liquor over it then cover the dish with cling film.

Leave in the fridge for 3 - 4 days (depending on the size of the fillet), basting regularly. The salmon will change from its raw state to firm textured with an opaque 'cooked' appearance.

Serve very thinly sliced.
